Pasta Alla Checca Recipes

I have never tried to grow, let alone even tasted, lemon basil before. This year, I decided to chew a small leaf of one when looking for new types of herbs to plant on my patio. It's heavenly!

Well, I have always adored traditional Pasta Alla Checca but using lemon basil instead of regular sweet basil added a whole new dimension to an already wonderful and healthy pasta dish. You simply must give it a try!

Ingredients:

  • 4 tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 4 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon basil, chopped
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • fresh Parmesan cheese, to taste, finely shredded
  • 1 lb. angel hair pasta

Directions:

Combine tomatoes, garlic, lemon basil and olive oil in a lidded plastic storage container. Stir in salt. Cover and sit at room temperature for two to four hours, gently stirring once or twice.

Cook pasta until "al dente" according to package directions. Drain. Place hot pasta on serving plates, top with sauce, garnish with Parmesan cheese and serve.
