Fresh Tomato, Sausage, and Pecorino Pasta
Although this simple pasta dish requires a bit of ingredients, it’s certainly worth. Ripe, late-summer tomatoes are juicy and delicious in this pasta dish, with no seeding or peeling necessary. It was really tasty and not heavy at all. The added basil really pops, enhancing the flavor. This basic pasta only took 40 minutes from start to table. To make this fast, slice onion, chop tomatoes and trim green beans while the pasta is cooking.
