Recipe type: Main Dish, Pasta
Cuisine: Japanese
Serves: 2

Well, back to today’s recipe on Cooking Japanese Style is a dish called Cold Pasta with Tomatoes and Basil or トマトとバジルの冷製パスタ in Japanese. It’s been really hot here in Japan and I really didn’t feel like eating any hot meal for dinner. So I made this dish, cause I have been growing my own basil and I thought it was a good time to eat what I have grown. It turn out to be very delicious and the family loved it. So if you are looking for a easy pasta recipe to make for those hot summer days this is the dish for you.
