Balsamic Tomato-Basil Pasta

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by DeSouter

This super tasty recipe came from a co-worker who's wealthy family always made sure to serve this at their fancy summer parties. It is a snap to put together, making it perfect for families who want a meal in a hurry, or the host of party who wants something spectacular that won't keep them in the kitchen instead of with their guests. Either way, you will get the same rave reviews that I have over the years.

This was very good. We added crumbled feta cheese.
Take 2: We just made this again and it was DELICIOUS! This time, we added chunks of chicken that were dredged through a flour mixture with thyme, dried mustard, paprika, salt and pepper, and then sauteed. SO GOOD!!!
