When I’m pressed for time and just need to get something on the table, my go to just seems to be pasta. As a chef, dad and husband I still want to put something respectable on the table and will always push for homemade everything. Pasta however doesn’t need to be some crazy extravagant ordeal that involves some ridiculously long process with ingredients that you can never find. It should be simple, few ingredients and most importantly be bursting with flavors! So when it came to crunch time the other night I whipped up this delicious Mediterranean Pasta Recipe with Fresh Tomatoes that literally took less than 30 minutes to prep and cook. So if you are scrambling to feed your family check out this Mediterranean Pasta Recipe with Fresh Tomatoes, and if you don’t have all the ingredients don’t worry just use what you have and remember to season with salt and pepper!
Must serve bread with this 🙂
Nothing but love in this pasta!
