Warm Pasta with Basil Vinaigrette

February 16, 2013

Here is one that I believe I got out of a cookbook in the past, though I cannot figure out which one. Let me know if you’ve seen it!


  • 8oz pasta spirals (to cut back on carbs, choose a vegetable pasta)
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup of black olives
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (Or diced tomatoes)
  • 2 Tbsp your choice of nuts – browned
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese or Feta
  • Fresh basil sprig
  • Sauce
  • 4 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese or Feta
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil (or alternate choice)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Pepper to taste


  1. Cook pasta and then drain and rinse to keep from sticking.
  2. Peel and cut whole tomatoes.
  3. Mix together sauce.
  4. Toss together with pasta
  5. Add peeled tomatoes, olives, sundried/diced tomatoes. Toss.
  6. Sprinkle nuts and cheese atop… Serve immediately.
