Summer fresh Tomato Fettuccine with Herbs! Tossed in a flavorful and easy garlic-balsamic dressing.
It’s that lovely time of year again for garden tomatoes! This recipe is absolutely beautiful in the summer with ripe tomatoes. Plus it’s paired with a small mountain of herbs for extra freshness. I adapted this from a recipe my mom found printed in a local newspaper, so unfortunately proper credit past that eludes me. However it’s become one of my summertime favorites!
How to Make Tomato Fettuccine
While the pasta is cooking, whisk together the garlic-balsamic dressing. Then dice the fresh veggies & herbs and place them in a large bowl. When the pasta is cooked, simply toss everything together and it’s ready to go! I also love that this recipe is basically done in the time it takes the pasta to cook.
Plus it’s great served warm right away, at room temp, or even chilled. To also make it gluten-free, simply swap in your favorite gluten-free pasta. (There are so many delicious gluten-free pastas on the market now! I love organic brown rice & quinoa blends. They hold up well, plus are nutrient-packed.) We’re also big garlic and basil lovers, so I like to add a little extra to suit our taste. Hope you enjoy it as well! It does make a large batch so reduce or halve if desired.
