"A quick, easy, and flavorful fresh pasta dish that showcases the summer's garden bounty! This recipe came about in an effort to use up a few more of those wonderful home-grown tomatoes and fresh basil. Everything was on hand and was easy to throw together. For garlic lovers, the second time I made this dish I used a garlic-infused olive oil; amazing! A crisp green salad is the perfect accompaniment. Enjoy!"

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a rolling boil. Cook angel hair pasta at a boil until tender but still slightly firm, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the pasta, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water for later use. Transfer the drained pasta to a large serving bowl.
  2. Place tomatoes in a bowl; season with sea salt and black pepper.
  3. Pour 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil over the tomato mixture and gently toss; set aside.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat.
  5. Cook and stir sliced shallot in the hot oil until just becoming translucent, 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Stir garlic into the shallot; continue cooking and stirring 1 minute more. Remove the skillet from heat.
  7. Assemble the dish by adding the tomato mixture, the shallot and garlic mixture, and the prosciutto to the pasta; toss to combine. Use the reserved water from cooking the pasta to make it easier to mix.
  8. Top the pasta dish with basil and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese to serve.

I made this salad with whole wheat pasta. The salad was a nice change, not heavy but light and refreshing. Next time I will put more garlic and try it with bacon. My family really enjoyed it.

Delicious and light! I cut the 1/3 cup of olive oil back to a scant 1/4 cup to save a few calories, and I still had no need for the pasta water. I definitely agree with the reviewers who recomme...

Great Summer dinner! This was very light, yet still filling - and SO fresh! I used grape tomatoes (quartered), because I had them on hand - wish they'd been juicier - I will go with regular toma...
