Pasta is tossed with white beans, roasted tomatoes, fresh basil, and a garlic infused olive oil. Serve with crusty bread to soak up the sauce and any leftover garlic olive oil. This isn't a hot pasta dish so it's perfect for summer.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine the olive oil and garlic in a small bowl. Set aside.

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the bow tie pasta and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • Place the pasta, beans, tomatoes, basil, and 2 tablespoons of the garlic olive oil in a large bowl; toss gently until combined. Serve the remaining olive oil at the table to drizzle over individual servings.

So fresh and light. The perfect snack or even as a main dish. A little too much oil for me so I just eyeballed it and used a few drizzles. Read More

I tried this for dinner last night and it was excellent. I didn't use the extra olive oil/garlic so next time I would probably cut the olive oil/garlic mixture in half. My family enjoyed it as well and some added parmesan cheese. I will definitely make this again for a quick vegetarian meal. Read More

I loved this. It was so easy and delicious. The only change I made was to heat the garlic and oil for the infusing instead of just letting it sit at room temp. Also I used tri colored penne instead of regular farfalle for a nutrition boost. Definitely recommend this dish! Read More

Great recipe. Makes a nice lunch side or dinner (just add some grilled chicken or fish). Used basil-infused olive oil and skipped the fresh basil. used garbanzo beans and rotini whole wheat pasta since I had them on hand. Sliced up some spanish and kalamata olives and grated fresh pecorino romano. YUM! SO ridiculously easy. Read More
