Summer Tomato Pasta

Went for a 5 hour hike yesterday and got hit with hail, mud and cold temps, and did I mention at least 10 claps of thunder? We did get down safe and sound but there was no way I was going food shopping for dinner nor was I heading out the door to dinner. What’s in the kitchen? what’s in the pantry? Beautiful organic tomatoes , pasta , olive oil and garlic. That’s all you need. Honestly after 5 hours of hiking I didn’t really care about the calories. Delicious comfort food is what we needed. Enjoy!
