Delicate angel hair pasta begs for an easy, elegant sauce. This one is a rustic tomato version of pesto, made quickly in a large bowl with grated fresh, in-season tomatoes, ground almonds instead of pine nuts, and a mix of fresh parsley and basil. Bring it all together with freshly grated Parmesan and olive oil for a light and lively meal that's a perfect pair with chardonnay or pinot grigio.

Ingredients

Directions

1. Set a pot of water for the pasta on high heat and bring to a boil. In a large mixing bowl, grate the tomatoes on a large box grater, leaving behind the skins. Toss the tomatoes together with the ground almonds, basil, parsley, and garlic. Stir in the Parmesan, olive oil, and lemon zest. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and pepper. Set aside 1 cup sauce.

2. When the water is boiling, cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain the pasta, reserving one-third cup pasta water, and toss with the remaining sauce. Add the pasta water.

3. Divide the pasta among 4 bowls, top with the reserved sauce, and garnish with additional freshly grated Parmesan. Serve with crusty bread.
