Pasta Havarti

My family has been making this simple dish for the last 15 years or so. Basically, you make a “marinade” of the following ingredients and toss it with pasta.

Havarti cheese (cubed)
Stewed Tomatoes (drained)
Minced Garlic
Fresh parsley
Fresh Basil
Olive Oil
Lemon juice
Salt and Pepper

I know I didn’t give any measurements. The recipe does have them, but I find that this one can be done any which way, as long as you think it tastes good. My mom doubles the tomatoes and cuts back the cheese to make it low fat, and it’s still good.

So I tried my own variation. Since my hubby is anti-raw/stewed tomatoes, he never liked this dish. So instead I substituted roasted tomatoes (ala Rachel Ray) and roasted garlic. Well, the results were fabulous! A flavorful, cheesy, delectable dish.

Give it a try fresh or roasted variety, yum!
