Monday is spaghetti and meatball night at our house, but in the middle of summer, I yearned for something a lot lighter. We had tomatoes tumbling from the garden, basil growing here and there, and some fresh mozzarella from the fridge. Voila! It tastes the most like summer if you use only fresh ingredients.
1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti pasta until al dente. Drain well. Toss with olive oil (and butter, because it really tastes so good).
2. As the pasta cooks, cut the tomatoes and fresh mozzarella into bite size chunks. Chop the basil.
3. To the hot, drained pasta, toss in the tomato, mozzarella, basil. Incorporate well, sprinkle with Parmesan, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
Weeknight dinners can be a monumental task for families on the run. Late meetings at work, sporting events, or last minute shopping trips, there are tons are reasons not to have a homemade meal. But savvy cooks know the slow cooker can be a home cook’s best friend. This recipe is a spin on the traditional Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich. By using chicken breasts, the meal is instantly lightened.
