- Set a pot of regular or brown rice pasta* to cook.
- While the pasta is cooking, thinly slice a red onion, mince a clove or two of garlic, halve (if cherry) or chop (if full-size) 2 pounds tomatoes and let everything mingle in a bowl with some olive oil, salt, pepper, a huge handful of chopped basil and a splash of red wine and balsamic vinegar.
- Strain the pasta, then immediately dump it over the tomato mixture. Let everything steam for a few minutes, then toss thoroughly and let sit about 15 minutes longer before serving.
We particularly like Tinkyada stone ground brown rice pasta. It tastes and has the texture of regular pasta, is wheat- and gluten-free and is also easily available. Alternatively, use the seasoned tomatoes over a bowl of roasted or sauteed vegetables.
