bruschetta spaghetti

This is a great summertime pasta as a side to barbecued meat. I still serve it year-round though because it's definitely a favourite. Adjust the amount of banana pepper to your tolerance for spiciness and enjoy!

Here's what you'll need for about 4 servings:
  • 340g spaghetti
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp minced basil
  • 1/3 banana pepper
  • 4 small vine-ripened tomatoes
  • sea salt
  • fresh ground pepper
Prep work (about 10 minutes):
  1. Chop/mince necessary ingredients.
Here's what to do (about 10 minutes):
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, garlic, chives, banana pepper, basil, tomatoes, salt and pepper.
  2. Mix and marinade for 1 hour.
  3. Cook and strain the spaghetti.
  4. Add spaghetti into the bowl, mix thoroughly and serve.
