In summer we start getting in the mood for fresh and cool food. We love cold pasta dishes! One of our favorite go-to recipes is something our mom made often growing up, Italian Pasta Salad. It's really simple, and can easily be customized. Here's our version of it with fresh red tomatoes, celery, garlic , basil and a lots of Parmigiano Reggiano:
Spaghetti in Insalata
1 clove of garlic
100g olive oil
Salt, black pepper
Chop celery, parsley and basil and place them in a bowl. Add the oil, mixing well. Cut the garlic in half and add it to the sauce. Cut the tomatoes into small cubes and add them to the sauce, along with salt and pepper. Cover the recipient and leave in a cool place for at least 1½ hours. Meanwhile cook the spaghetti, pour it into the recipient and mix well, adding the Parmigiano.
