SUMMER PASTA WITH MOZZARELLA CHEESE
from "Smith & Hawken: The Gardeners' Community Cookbook" by Victoria Wise

"Rhode Island is a state with a strong Italian heritage that very much influences the gardening and food culture. This recipe has many variations but always starts with home-grown tomatoes and freshly picked basil." It's true, such fresh pasta concoctions hail form the Northeast, where many Italian families settled, planted gardens, and kept on cooking, "even if they do not have a real garden." Here the variation is that the traditional summer pasta included chicken broth as part of the liquid for saucing the noodles.


-Noreen Shawcross (East Greenwich, RI)
