Our favorite summer garden recipe!

Basil and brandywine pasta:

6 large homegrown brandywine tomatoes (or whatever is in your garden), diced
1/2 pound cooked, ground up beef (we prefer organic & grass fed, but meat is optional)
a handful of fresh basil, chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely diced
2 fresh sprigs of thyme
2 fresh sprigs of oregano
a couple generous splashes of red wine (your choice)
salt and pepper to taste
a Tbs of milled flax seed (to help thicken, plus added nutrition)
1 pound of Organic whole wheat penne pasta (follow directions on container)
a handful of shredded Parmesan cheese (or whatever raw local cheese you have)

Directions: First cook and ground beef in large sauce pan. Then put all of these delicious ingredients together in same large sauce pan as the beef. Let simmer for 35-40 minutes. Add this to cooked pasta. Sprinkle cheese on top (and any leftover fresh basil). It is as simple as that! (Serves 4-6 people)
