Heirloom Tomato Pasta

Heirloom Tomato PastaYou know those days when you need pasta and you need it now? That was yesterday for me. I needed pasta. In my stomach. ASAP. I was trying to hold off a major migraine, and when that’s in progress, I need something serious to eat.

So, pasta…but I figured I should probably have some vegetables, too. Luckily I had some heirloom tomatoes (that were total lookers, by the way), basil, and some cashew cream already made—I was eating 20 minutes later. 🙂

This meal is really easy, healthy, and filling.

Hope you like it!

    Your range of colored tomatoes makes this dish absolutely beautiful! I don’t know if mine will be this pretty, but it looks delicious either way! Thanks for another wonderful idea Mackenzie!
