Adventures in (Growing &) Cooking: Tomato Pasta

The tomato plants were an impulse buy at the grocery store, and a bit of an experiment. As in “let’s see if I can keep these alive long enough for them to even product anything.”

Then they went from this:

Tomatoes, growing

to this:

Tomatoes, all grown

and finally became this:

Tomato Pasta

This is me, who has a strong penchant for killing anything green. I have GROWN VEGETABLES, and then COOKED A MEAL WITH THEM. Understatement of the century, I was excited about this.

What I did:

  1. Boil water & cook up some whole-wheat linguine.
  2. Heat up oil for sauteeing. Minced garlic goes in first, stir around for a couple minutes, until just brown. Diced purple onion goes in next, sautee a few more minutes, until onions are translucent. Tomatoes go in last, along with all their juicyness. Don’t cook too long after this, or the tomatoes get too soft.
  3. Add the cooked pasta & get it all good & mixed together.
  4. Season: crazy salt, pepper, oregano.

This is just what I had on hand, I think it would be tasty with any other veggies you’d care to sautee up.
