What's for dinner?

Tomato and Basil Angel Hair Toss

1/2 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup sliced green onions
6 large tomatoes, peeled & diced
1 large bunch fresh basil, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 lb. Angel hair pasta
fresh grated parmesan cheese, to taste


Heat oil in large pan. Add garlic and green onions. Stir-fry for 2-3 min. Add tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper. Simmer on low heat, stiring frequently. Prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain and toss hot pasta with tomato mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

To peel tomatoes: score the bottom of the tomato. Blanche each tomato in boiling water for 15-30 seconds, place hot tomato in a bowl of ice water and the skin peels off easily.

Ryan and I love, love, love this dish! It is good hot or cold. We think it tastes better when it is at least a day old if not a couple. Ryan told me we should ALWAYS have this in the fridge!
