I picked some fresh basil leaves and chopped up some fresh tomatoes to go on top on this pasta dish. Yum! I love being able to go out onto the balcony and get me some basil when I like. My tomato plants are obviously just started to get established now. I did get some salad mix and baby romaine lettuce, which I hope to get planted this weekend. I’d like to be able and pick some of that when I like too!
This dish ended up being a mix between macaroni and cheese and a pasta fresca. Yes, there were two competing themes going on there, but hey… It happens sometimes.
- Whole-Wheat Penne Pasta
- Olive Oil
- Shredded American, Monterery Jack and Cheddar mix
- Fresh Basil, chopped
- Tomatoes, chopped
- Turkey Sausage, chopped (leftovers)
