    Summer Fresh Pasta

    This is terrific for a summer lunch.

    What you will need:
    12 0z. pasta, any shape
    1/2 cup pine nuts (optional - they are crazy expensive - but oh so good)
    1/4 cup olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tablespoons lemon zest
    Juice of 1-2 lemons (1/4 cup or so)
    2 cups grape tomatoes, cut in half
    1/2 cup  of your favorite chopped fresh herbs (I love basil!)
    Salt and pepper to taste

    How to make it:
    Bring a large pot of water to a boil for the pasta.
    Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, toast the pine nuts until they are golden brown (two to
    three minutes). Then transfer them to a bowl.
    Reduce the heat under the skillet. add the olive oil and garlic, and cook until it is soft and smells really good.
    Remove the skillet from the heat and add the lemon zest and juice, set aside.
    When the water boils, cook the pasta al dente. Once it's cooked, but before draining, reserve a 1/3 cup of the
    pasta water.
    Drain the pasta well and add it to the skillet. Add the pasta water, herbs, pine nuts and tomatoes.
    Toss well. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm ot room temperature.
