Pasta in a dash

A quick fix: Pasta with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and basil

This one is a quick one really- both the post and the recipe within it. Like I had mentioned some time back, things had come to a head- what with a full time job, writing assignments and a marriage to boot, I had decided to take things slow, way slow. Nowadays one of the things I don’t aspire to do is to experiment with a dish on a working week day. Unless of course it is as simple as the pasta dish featured today.

I am always on the look out for easy dinners, the lesser the ingredients and fewer the pots, the better. My email drafts list is a 100 odd entries long and 90% of these are recipes. Anyway. A week back I came across Angela Hartnett’s pasta recipe on the Guardian website. Made with the holy trinity of basil, mozzarella and tomatoes, it is simple and tasty. The parsley gives it a nice kick but even without it, you won’t regret eating this preparation. The tomatoes matter since they are essential part of the flavouring business. I am sure you can use any other tomatoes than cherry tomatoes (I used plum tomatoes) as long as they are not tart.
