Dinner Tonight: Pasta with Spring Herbs
I'm not sure it gets much simpler than this recipe from Martha Stewart Living. Cook some pasta, drain, then toss it in a large bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
Honestly. You won't have to sauté loads of ingredients or simmer things for hours. It all comes together during the time it takes to boil the pasta. This is all about enjoying the warming weather and, why not, with a really nice glass of white wine.
To be certain, this isn't a feisty dish that will impress people with your cooking prowess. It's calm, and a nice light meal that could also work well as a first course for something meaty. To maximize flavor, use a really good olive oil and parmesan (not the pre-grated stuff from the green canister). Otherwise, enjoy the simplicity of this dish.
