Sundried Tomato and Basil Pasta

Zissy Lewin

This sun-dried tomato and basil pasta is made with a few simple ingredients that come together in the time it takes you to boil pasta. Simple it may be, but it’s pretty darn delicious and if you’ve made a pasta that both adults and a picky 2-year-old will eat and ask for more, you know you’re on to a winner.


I used the sun-dried tomatoes you find in the fresh produce fridges, they’re more affordable than the jarred or packaged in oil and a little soak in hot water makes them easy to blend.


Word of advice don’t forget to reserve pasta water – the starch helps the sauce stick to the pasta better.
