Pasta Crudo

This is a long-time favorite recipe I learned from former Sawbill crew-member Mike Gaud. I made this batch with fresh tomatoes, garlic and basil from my garden, which made this delicious dish even tastier.


Pasta Crudo Recipe (2 servings):

Boil water

Add 1 c. pasta, cook until al dente.


Meanwhile, chop:

2 tomatoes

3 sprigs of basil

2 cloves garlic


And combine with:

A drizzle of olive oil

A pinch of salt


When the pasta is done cooking, drain and toss with tomatoes.


Stir in:

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

2 T shredded parmesan cheese



Top with toasted pine nuts.


Tastes great hot, cold, or at room temperature. Excellent as cold leftovers. Warning: May leave mouth tasting garlicky for hours afterwards.
