Tomato Basil Pasta

This tomato basil pasta recipe combines the classic caprese ingredients with delicate angel hair pasta to create a delectable treat.

Of all the spaghetti or macroni out there, angel hair has always been one of my favorites. As "delicate" as it looks, it is always quite filling. If you are an angel hair fan, like I am, you will love this recipe.

Otherwise known as Angel Hair Caprese, you will love this simple but elegant meal.


  • 6 medium Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, shredded
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, diced
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon sallt
  • 3/4 pound angel hair pasta
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


At least one hour in advance, combine the tomatoes, garlic, basil, mozzarella, olive oil, chicken broth and salt. Let sit at room temperature.

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and add to the bowl with the tomato mixture. Add Parmesan cheese and pepper. Toss and serve warm.
