Quick Summer Spaghetti

August 16, 2017Sew White

My Quick Summer Spaghetti is made with a mix of fresh herbs, red onion, tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil and red wine vinegar.

Summer is the time to enjoy the sunshine (if we are lucky to have it) so delicious and filling food that doesn’t take all day to make. This simple spaghetti tastes amazing and is so easily adaptable to include your favourite things. I love the fresh herbs in this dish. It always amazes me how much flavour they give the finished food. The parsley and basil are just incredible with the other flavours. I love the crisp red onion, soft tomatoes, spicy olives (I love chilli olives) mixed with the red wine vinegar and olive oil keeps it light and fresh.

Perfect for events

I love this dish and it is a summer special for my family. What I also love is that hot or cold it tastes great. So if you make a little too much save it for your lunch the next day. I love how versatile this recipe is too. It’s great as a mean meal but also works so well for a side dish. I always make this for summer BBQs and parties. It’s loved by children and adults always.  Use it as a base for your favourite flavours too. If you prefer sundried tomatoes go for it. It’s a very flexible recipe and one that you will enjoy time and time again.
