Summer Tomato Pasta

Craving something light, full of flavorful, and absolutely divine?! You just found it. 
I used 100% fresh ingredients that make being healthy, easy and delicious.

 Pasta Ingredients:
      8 ripe tomatoes, diced
      1/3 c. basil, chopped
      3 T. parsley, chopped
      4 garlic cloves, minced
      1/3 c. extra virgin olive oil
      Kosher salt & pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients and pulse in a food processor to blend flavors. Serve cold over whole wheat pasta.

Garlic Bread Ingredients:
     Ciabatta Bread, cut in half lengthwise
     3 T butter, softened (can substitute olive oil)
     Garlic Salt (I prefer Lawry's)
     3 T parsley, chopped
     Cheeses: Parmesan, Asiago, Cheddar
Spread softened butter on bread, sprinkle with garlic salt and parsley, then top with cheese. Broil in oven for 3-5 minutes until golden brown.

I served this pasta with the ciabatta bread, roasted corn-on-the-cob, and 100% triple berry juice. Everyone loved it and I hope you enjoy. Bon Appetit!
