Farm To Table Supper

I found this recipe on Martha Stewart’s page where you may watch a short video of it being prepared.

I changed it just a bit, including the portions since it was for just Tom and I. This is the simplest of suppers, yet so delicious. A perfect summer meal. My pasta came from Italy and my olive oil from Tunisia, but everything else came from Windy Poplars Farm!


Cut up some tomatoes. Chop some basil and parsley. Put a few cloves of garlic through the garlic press. Add olive oil. Sprinkle with salt (and pepper, if you like).


Cook pasta. Drain. Put pasta in your bowl or on a plate, and top with the mixture.

  1. I have all the ingredients fresh from the farmers market (well from a couple of days ago). This may have to be dinner tonight or tomorrow. :)

  2. Sometimes the very simplest things can be the best, especially if fresh, just picked vegetables and herbs.

    1. I pretty much eat tomatoes only in the summer now. When the local greenhouse ones come into the Co-op, I begin buying them.

  5. Like you, I went to the Farmers' Market this morning. Around 10 pounds of tomatoes and herbs are in the oven now, becoming slow-roasted tomatoes for the freezer. Your preparation appears to be similar but quicker.

    1. Windy Poplars Farm is MY farm! We have a small garden this year, and are mostly eating the tomatoes right off the vine, though I've stewed, strained, and frozen some for winter tomato sauce.

  10. This looks and sounds wonderful. And if both my husband and I eat it, it won't won't matter that either one of us has fresh garlic breath! ;-)

  13. I love a simple meal like this, but hubby would like some sort of meat added or on the side. Chicken, pork or even salmon would do. :)

    1. It would be just as good with brown rice or potatoes, I'm sure. I plan to try both of those varieties next summer!
