Recipe:: Summer Sauce For Pasta

As a Wedding present, my sister Katie made me a book of her best recipes. She made all the dishes, took the pictures herself and compiled them into a book.  I use it all the time. We have eaten some of our very best meals from her book. This recipe comes from the book she made me:

Everyday Gourmet by Katherine Drake

I love this recipe because it is SO easy! I am ALL about easy folks. By the time dinner rolls around I'm just so tired and I want to make anything that is easy to throw together. You just dump all the ingredients into a bowl and let it set for at least an hour to let all the flavors to mingle. Then when ever you are ready you just boil up some angel hair pasta! Voila! You're done! Can't get any easier that this guys! You serve the sauce cool, with warm pasta. It is really nice on those hot summer days when all you want is something cool and healthy.

I like to serve it with Asparagus! My sisters way is THE ONLY way I'll eat it now! Super yummy!

If I'm feeling like dessert I will serve it with some sorbet and fresh fruit. Makes for a super healthy and filling summer meal! Enjoy!

What is your favorite dinner recipe?


  1. Goodness me! These two recipes have me wanting to buy a copy of this recipe book! How simple are these two!? I'll be printing these two out and trying them. I'll let you know how it works out. We've been grilling a lot lately. I can probably do the asparagus on the grill wrapped in aluminum foil. :)

  2. Um how can I get my hands on that cookbook?

  3. Okay, so I am a personal friend of you and Katie. I think you both need to find a way to get me copy of this cookbook! WOWSERS, Katie--is she getting this copyrighted and making some $$? She should! (And you should write the commentary--you're so clever!)

  4. @SuburbiaMom & @Colleen: I'll ask Katie if she has any left! She even took all the pictures of her dishes herself. I'm SERIOUSLY impressed with how professional her book is. It was a perfect wedding gift. Giving me some healthy recipes to start our life off together.

    The Summer Sauce for Pasta is actually SOOOOO easy but it makes you look like a rock star chef! It is really healthy, tastes amazing, and is super easy to make! What's not to like?!

  5. I made the asparigus on the grill tonight! It was awesome. Thanks for posting the recipes. Hubby's on a no carb diet, so I'll have to try the pasta myself.
