Balsamic Pasta – Freshness On A Plate

Balsamic Pasta

This Balsamic Pasta dish reminds me of summer, regardless in what month I eat it; the basil and tomatoes add freshness to the dish, while the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and garlic (oh what a surprise!) contribute to a wave of flavors.

I lived in Italy for a while and given the opportunity I would pack my bags and move the whole family back to Tuscany.  It truly is Heaven on Earth: beautiful nature, vineyards, sunflowers and food in its purest forms.  In the morning you buy your food fresh at the market; fresh cheese, milk, fruits, vegetables, pastas, wines and meats.  You know, “fresh”, as in not pre-packaged, nothing added, not processed…fresh.  It’s a truly delicious concept.  Later in the day you make a meal from all these wonderful ingredients you bought earlier that morning and you add a nice glass of Pino Grigio to go with it.  Dinner: Complete.

So, given that there are 6,232 miles between me and my dreams, and Mommy cannot just hop on a plane to go to Italy, we’re bringing Italy to Mommy.  And with this balsamic pasta recipe I am succeeding.  I already mentioned that it was fresh.  The original recipe is vegetarian, but if you feel a desperate inclination to add any meat to the dish, I would recommend a mild sausage or a hard salami (the salami is my preference, given its texture).
