Just a Friendly Reminder

tuna pasta2

I know I posted this recipe back in the winter, during a snow storm, but here it is again to remind you to make it when it matters.

In August.

When it's miserably hot and humid and you don't want to make a production and heat up the kitchen (though the weather has been much cooler this week for a change).

It's a simple cold pasta sauce, made with fresh cherry tomatoes, capers, garlic, a can of Italian tuna in oil, anchovies & fresh basil. Douse it with extra virgin olive oil and let the flavors meld together on the counter for an hour or so.

Pour the room temperature fresh tomato sauce over hot pasta (yes, you have to boil the water for the pasta), and you have the most delicious summer dinner.



Just a friendly reminder.

Stay cool.

Stacey, this is a great reminder and those photos look very inviting. I hope your weather cools off soon.

Here in the mountains we are beginning to get a little relief. It gets down into the low 60's at night. Great weather for sleeping.

I've had oil-packed tuna in the cupboard for a while. This might just be tonight's supper.

This would certainly "beat the heat"! Perfect for this time of year.
