Nothing compares with the juiciness of summer tomatoes; try them tossed with aromatic pine nuts in this easy pasta dish.

I used to be able to print these recipes, what happened? Am I missing something?

Dont drain the pasta. Transfer it to the bowl using a pasta fork. It's better to have a little pasta water in the dish because it helps to make it's own "sauce". If the pasta seems dry, stir in a couple of Tbls of pasta water. Pasta water is salted and has the flavor of the pasta cooked in it. I do this with every pasta dish and it always works. Be sure to start with just a little water. You can always add more.

pasta was not meant to be eaten as a main course but as a small first course.

I make something very similar to this, except I use cherry or grape tomatoes that I crush by hand (with clean hands), and fresh shredded basil instead of pine nuts. I also add a splash of balsamic vinegar to each plated serving.

I make this recipe all summer. I use a good quality light olive oil vinaigrette dressing, in place of the olive oil, whole wheat pasta, and sprinkle with fresh basil. It is delicious and low calorie.
