I have to say that I am feeling a little bit more appreciative of fresh produce this summer! In LA, the farmers’ markets are filled with beautiful fruits and veggies consistently throughout the year. This spring when we arrived to Minneapolis, the farmers’ markets had very few vegetables at all. But each week, there are more and more vegetables showing up. And here we are: tomato season!

It’s one of my favorite seasonal vegetables, probably because it just can’t be easily replicated like so many other veggies can. And when they’re ripe, we eat them every way we can! Sometimes it’s in the form of BLTs, sometimes fresh tomato salads, many times simply drizzled with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. And of course, this easy bruschetta pasta.

What is Easy Bruschetta Pasta?

It’s SO easy! It’s simply pasta topped with an easy bruschetta sauce. I went through a major MAJOR bruschetta phase in the beginning of my cooking journey. It was one of the few things I knew how to make, and it’s just so good that I made it ALL the time. I make my bruschetta with chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, minced garlic, olive oil, and salt. I also added a balsamic reduction to this easy bruschetta pasta for a little extra flavor.

What kind of tomatoes should I use for Easy Bruschetta Pasta?

I would recommend using whatever tomatoes look best to you! This time of year, on-the-vine tomatoes are juicy and flavorful, as are beefsteaks, and of course, heirlooms. If none of those are looking good, you could also use a grape or cherry tomato or even the mini heirlooms that I see in the market year-round.

Some summer nights, a lighter pasta dish like this is all I need for dinner, but if you think you’ll need something a little more substantial, I’ve included adding chicken sausages in the recipe. They take just a few minutes to heat up.

Either way, you’ll want to make this easy bruschetta pasta for dinner before the season ends!
