A fast dinner doesn’t get any better – or easier – than this! A few great-tasting ingredients combine into one terrific pasta dish.
Real cream is what naturally separates from and floats on top of the milk layer of freshly gathered milk.This recipe is brought to you by:
In large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for about 9 min or until tender but firm, or according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1 cup (250 ml) of the pasta cooking water.
Return pot to medium heat and add cream and pesto. Heat, stirring, for 2 min or until steaming. Return pasta to pot; add tomatoes and toss to combine, adding enough of the pasta water to moisten to desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve topped with olives, pine nuts and Canadian Parmesan cheese.
If local field tomatoes aren’t in season, often the greenhouse-grown grape tomatoes or tomatoes-on-the-vine have great flavor – even in those cold fall and winter months.
For the Adventurous: Add one 7 oz (210 ml) jar drained marinated artichoke hearts, chopped or 2 cups (500 ml) chopped grilled or roasted asparagus with the tomatoes
