Description

A few weeks ago, I spent a lovely afternoon with the beautiful ladies behind the site, How You Glow. They wanted to make some summer recipes and I knew this light and brightly flavored pasta dish would be perfect. The raw sauce is so simple to make and if you use high quality ingredients, it will be bursting with flavor.

Get Started
Step 1

Place a large stock pot of water over high heat and bring to a boil. While you are waiting for the water to boil, assemble the sauce. In a large bowl, place the diced tomatoes with all of the seeds and juice.

Tear or chop the basil, adding it to the bowl. Reserve a little basil for garnish.

Step 3

With a garlic press, press the garlic into the bowl. Add the olive oil. Taste. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Taste. Add more olive oil, sea salt, and pepper as necessary.
