I made pasta for dinner last night, but with the summer heat, hot pasta is not as appetizing! Instead I cool the pasta off and serve it cold or lukewarm with just a couple ingredients from the garden.

I used home grown tomatoes and basil! This meal is so simple to make and tastes great with just a little bit of salt and olive oil! I used Bari Basil infused olive oil, which gave it extra flavor! Enjoy!
