Not sure how many of you remember the successful Silver Palate cookbook from the eighties, but I found mine last weekend while unpacking a box of books.

It was the first cookbook I purchased after graduation.

Anyway, I was tired last night and it was hot so I decided to try the super-easy, super-simple summer pasta recipe for linguine with tomatoes, basil and cheese. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post the recipe here since it belongs to the authors (?), but it's basically a fresh tomato sauce that involves allowing brie cheese and chopped tomatoes, along with EVOO and basil and spices to sit out together at room temps. Over a couple hours, they marinate into a lovely sauce.

It's on page 78, I highly recommend it if you still have the book.

I even used Dreamfields low carb pasta and it was great, if you're into that sort of thing.
