We are enjoying the simple pleasures of summer. For the kiddies, it’s being able to stay up late (and wake up late) whereas for me, it’s cutting fresh herbs right out of the garden to prepare a meal.
Spaghettini with roasted garlic, basil and bocconcini tomato sauce
2 tbs of olive oil
5 cloves of garlic peeled
5 cups of chopped fresh tomatoes
4 oz of small bocconcini cheese balls
1/4 cup of cooking wine
salt and pepper to taste
8 Oz of Capellini or Spaghettini
1/2 cup of fresh basil leaves, chopped or torn
Parmessan cheese to garnish (optional)
– Heat oven to 350.
– Place olive oil, tomatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, cheese and wine in an oven safe pan and roast for 35-40 mins. (save some cheese for garnish)
– While tomatoes are roasting, cook pasta according to package instructions in salted water
– Drain and combine pasta and sauce, add torn basil leaves and toss to mix
– Cut reserved bocconcini balls into quarters
– Serve and garnish with fresh basil leaves and reserved bocconcini balls
– Grate fresh parmessan cheese if desired.
As a healthy alternative, use whole wheat pasta or spaghetti squash and omit the cheese.
Pasta and fresh French bread are probably my biggest weaknesses. What are yours?
I’ll be back on Monday with some fun stuff from DecoArt. Thank you for stopping by and not forgetting me….:)

This looks so fresh and wonderful Lucy. I adore pasta (but don’t each much now as I’m trying to go gluten free). Will have to try this spaghetti squash!
This looks delicious, Lucy.

This looks so delicious, Lucy! I’m thinking it’s the perfect thing to cook when you need to use up some tomatoes and herbs (that’s me right now). 🙂
Well, isn’t that just like you, you naughty girl….making me hungry this time of night!!! xo Diana
Mmmm this looks and sounds delicious!
I have some fresh herbs in my garden and I love it!! It’s great to pick a bit whenever you like to really liven up a dish. Especially sunny weekend meals in the garden, yummy! 🙂
