Spaghetti With Three Tomatoes

This light, luscious pasta dish is so named because the sauce is made with three different types of tomato - sun-dried, canned and fresh cherry tomatoes. I made it with whole wheat spaghetti for extra nutrition but you can use plain if you prefer.

This is excellent. Loved the simplicity of it and also the colours. I didnt have any cherry tomatoes so used 3 acid free tomatoes instead. I sprinkled some grated parmesan over before serving. Thanks for sharing.
