It's Hot!!!

So this weather here in the Pacific Northwest is finally starting to feel like summer now that we are half way through! We have been having fun experimenting with cold dinners. I thought I would share a simple, quick, and delicious recipe I made for dinner last night!

 Pasta Margarita (named for Pizza Margarita, not the beverage!)

1/2 pound whole wheat pasta cooked and chilled
1 can Italian diced tomatoes, chilled
5 to 8 fresh basil leaves, ripped into tiny pieces (we got ours from our garden!)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon  extra virgin olive oil

combine all ingredients in a chilled bowl. Serve with your favorite cold beverage and a nice veggie platter!

It was a big hit with my kids and I am sure you will love it too!
