Hey you! Yes, YOU! What’s for dinner tonight? A little pizza…maybe some spaghetti…some good bread and cheese with wine?
Think again. Dinner tonight is this delicious (easy!) vegetarian pasta dish. I bet you already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen right now! Cherry tomatoes, arugula, cute little balls of fresh mozzarella, some roasted red peppers….it’s really good, especially with a chilly glass of white wine. And it’s perfect right now when cherry tomatoes are as sweet as candy and on sale at just about every market in America. Don’t you just love tomato season?!
I made this pasta the week before last and the leftovers lasted me all week! It’s delicious hot, but I also loved it cold straight out of the fridge and into my bowl. The cherry tomatoes and the arugula pair so nicely, and if you choose to use whole wheat pasta it’s extra healthy, which just means more cookies later!
The original recipe for this yummy pasta is from Cassie. That girl can COOK!
I love how fresh and healthy this dish was without sacrificing on any flavor. It reminded me to use paprika more often! I love the smokiness it brings to a dish. Next time I make it, I think I’m going to add some spicy chicken sausage for a little extra kick. It’s plenty good and filling on it’s own though!
You can find the recipe for this over on The Tasty Kitchen Blog—it’s a lovely end of summer one-dish meal!
Happy weekend, friends!
