Golden Tomato Pasta With Pesto

Pasta is my love language, and there’s nothing more comforting than sharing a big bowl of pasta with someone you love. I was so excited to learn that Giadzy sells Fusilli Lunghi - one of my absolute favorite shapes! When I was kid, my grandmother would buy it on special occasions from the Italian deli down the street from her house, and it always makes me think of home.

I’ve paired it here with an amazing pesto sauce from Italy and some beautiful yellow tomatoes. These two ingredients seemed like the ideal combination for a sauce: bright, flavorful, and perfect for sharing with someone special!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water and salt generously. Cook the pasta to al dente and reserve 1/4 cup of pasta water.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and saute the garlic for about one minute, being careful to not burn it. Drain the tomatoes and add them to the skillet along with the salt and reduce the heat to medium low. Cook until the tomatoes have popped and started to shrivel, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Add the cooked pasta to the skillet with the tomatoes and gently toss together to coat. Add the pesto and a spoonful of pasta water together until the pasta is well-coated with sauce. Serve with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
