This is a quick meal that only takes 10 minutes to make from start to finish.
Chop 1 shallot, peel and smash 1 clove of garlic, and mix both with 3 tablespoons of really good extra virgin olive oil (my favorite is Ascolano Certified Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Lucero) and the juice of 1 lemon. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Chop a few leaves of fresh basil into thin strips.
Chop 2 tomatoes.
Toss the lemon and olive oil mixture, basil and tomatoes with cooked fusilli or your favorite pasta o’ choice. DONE.
Gobble it all down, but don’t forget to Instagram that ish first!
If you want, you can let it sit overnight in the fridge to marry the flavors even more. This is one of those dishes that’s even better the next day.
You can also easily modify it by adding cheese (fresh mozzarella, feta or parmesan would be tasty) or grilled chicken or salmon.
