I know summer is in full force for a number of reasons.
1. When the weatherman says it’s going to COOL down to 85 degrees.
2. Having an aggressive and unfortunate farmers tan.
3. Mosquito bites on every inch of my arms and legs.
4. Dirt in my toenails, fingernails, and other unexplainable places.
But most importantly, I know it’s summer because of food like this:
Sometimes a bowl full of tomatoes, green beans, garlic and basil is just what the doctor ordered.
So if you feel like celebrating summer in the best way possible, make this. And you should probably enjoy this meal with a glass of rose’. Why not? We are celebrating summer after all.
So here is what you do. First, cook up your favorite pasta. I chose bow ties.
Then steam your green beans.
Chop up some cherry tomatoes, garlic, and basil.
Mix everything together with the cooked pasta. Add olive oil and salt. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours. Serve with a side of arugula salad. BAM! Summertime in your mouth!
