I made this dish late last summer with farm-fresh basil and this instantly became one of my favorite meals. Light, healthy and tasty, this is another easy-to-do pasta recipe that is ready in under 30 minutes.
When I lived in Germany, I had the experience of visiting many Mediterranean cities, and the one things that all of that had in common, whether in Greece, France, Spain or Italy, is that they had deep connections to healthy food that comes directly from nature.
Tomatoes, chickpeas, basil and spinach were staples in much of Mediterranean cuisine. I wanted to recreate something easy for busy people to make all touched with the Mediterranean flavor.
I made this farm-fresh basil, and it took the meal to a whole new level. If possible, I recommend using fresh basil, especially during the summer harvest months.
"The Mediterranean diet is rich in fruits and vegetables while low in sodium. It is also enriched with olive oil, high in antioxidants as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats."
