Summer Garden Pasta by Mediterranean Baby-4

I included cherry tomatoes in my herb garden this year and have loved watching them grow.  It has been wonderful to share the growing process with my kids as well. My son was fascinated by the flowers that drop off to reveal little budding tomatoes.

Today, some of the tomatoes were finally ready to be picked.  All three of my little ones helped pick them and had so much fun doing it. From there, we all came inside and I whipped up this fresh pasta dish with my fresh tomatoes, basil and flat leaf Italian parsley.  This whole dish will only take as long as it takes to cook your pasta! Cheers to summer :)
