For me, July has been a whirlwind of activity. I’ve been away more than I’ve been at home, and even though I do enjoy traveling, my diet has suffered greatly.

After a full day spent sitting in either an airport or on a plane, I was ready for a simple home cooked meal. Simple being the key word; all that sitting around makes a girl TIRED.

This pasta is as  simple as it gets.

  • 2 - 3 cloves of garlic {smashed}
  • handful of basil leaves

  • cook the pasta according to the package instructions
  • while the water is boiling, toss the tomatoes and garlic with a bit of olive oil

  • toss the pasta with the tomatoes and garlic

If you can’t find burrata, fresh mozzarella is a close substitution.

It must have done the trick, because I’m already planning our next vacation.
