Step By Step  

Even in midwinter you can get a taste of summer with fresh basil and tomato pasta.

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

This fast and easy dinner will remind you of warmer days ahead.

To me, and probably anyone who has ever had a garden, tomato and basil is the taste of summer. But sometimes you crave those flavors in the middle of the winter! One option is to buy overpriced and not very tasty tomatoes from the store. What I do instead is use really good canned tomatoes to fulfill my cravings.

This simple pasta dish tastes like those fresh summer flavors you've been missing for the past several months. There are only a few ingredients and it takes only as long as boiling water.
