|Ingredients 1 package farfalle pasta (bow ties) 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons minced garlic 30g sun dried tomatoes 20g walnuts coarsely chopped 1 bunch fresh basil|
Soak the tomatoes in hot water; I add a pinch of sugar, until it moist and tender, toss in olive oil. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the farfalle pasta, and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cut the garlic cloves, and then fry on low heat. When the pasta is ready, add to the skillet mix well and serve very hot. If using whole garlic cloves, remove them before serving. Add the tomatoes and fresh basil leaves. (The fresh leaves served at moment, makes flavor and aromas don’t be loosed.) Sprinkle with chopped walnuts, you can add parmesan cheese flakes too at the end f you like it.

Friday’s quick ideas for the week end #8 - Farfalle with sun dried tomatoes and basil
Today I give you a very simple and quick pasta dish that is quite easy to make. My husband is a kind of guy, that when we came out for dinner or lunch, is always craving for pesto pasta and at home is the same thing But I am tired to make all the same So, I prepare more the same, but a little bit different. I love it!! It was very Italian with Italian flag colors, healthy and fresh. A nice idea for when time is tight and you can still serve a nutritious, homemade dinner.
