Perfect Summer Pasta!



In the summer when plum tomatoes are in abundance, fresh tomatoes are always the best choice to use in this sauce.

You can use whole tomatoes in a can and puree them in winter.

The freshness of summer vegetables make this sauce super special.

We love spinach pasta noodles with this dish also. It just goes perfect with the vegetable noodles.
