Summer Pasta Sauce

  • Yield 6 servings

A no-cook sauce that makes the most of juicy, ripe tomatoes.

Serve this sauce over hot cooked linguine and top with a few gratings of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.


2 pounds ripe tomatoes, peeled, cored, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
3/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Mix the tomatoes, parsley, basil, garlic, olive oil, red pepper and salt in a large glass bowl. Cover and chill for 1 hour or longer.
  2. Toss the chilled sauce with cooled cooked linguini or other pasta. Top each serving with finely grated Parmesan or asiago cheese if desired.
