Croxetti with Marinated Heirloom Tomatoes

Boil the pasta about five minutes before the tomatoes are ready. The warmth will bring out the flavors of the fresh ingredients.

Cook's Notes

Follow these steps when you cook the pasta for this dish: Bring a large pot of water (6 quarts) to a boil -- you want enough water so the pasta can move around. Season the water with 1/4 cup coarse salt. (The water should be well seasoned; think "salty like the sea.") Cook 1 pound of pasta until al dente. Drain, reserving at least 2 cups cooking water. The pasta releases starch as it cooks, and the starchy water is essential to the sauce.

    Such a lovely and refreshing summertime dish. I used cherry heirloom tomatoes and farfalle pasta. It's so simple to prepare and the taste is fantastic.

    This dish is simply delicious! I prepared the tomato mixture the night before. After adding the warm pasta, I served this over a lovely mix of salad greens. Yum!

    My husband made this recipe last night and it was delicious. He is recovering from a stroke and is just starting back at cooking - this was simple enough for him to handle. He didn't salt the pasta water - next time we will for sure. I also squeezed extra lemon juice on mine which is a matter of taste. We will definately make this recipe again.
