pasta :: out of season

pasta is a favorite at all times for the bigger part of our family. there is one person who really is not a pasta fan and would not eat spaghetti at all. so this variation of pasta was liked by all and the fresh basil is a result of my early start with putting seeds into the seed box by the end of february....

it has gotten really warm the past couple days, so we enjoyed a summery supper. even though i'm aware of the tomatoes being still absolutely out of season. they are local grown, just 10 miles but in green houses, so not what i buy on a regular day.
and to my surprise, the kids noticed right away: "mama why do you put tomatoes in the salad? where are they from?" so at least the out of season was noticed!
