Heirloom Tomato Basil and Olive Oil Wine Sauce over Pasta

The combination of the tomatoes and basil in the olive oil wine sauce makes for a very comforting and juicy sauce.  Heirloom tomatoes are the most delicious, juiciest tomatoes ever!!!


When the tomatoes are in season, I make this dish for Robby and I at least once a week.  It is really a simple dish yet super tasty!


Recipe: 4 Servings

  • 1 16 oz Pasta of your choice ( I used brown rice pasta )
  • 5 Heirloom Tomatoes
  • 1/3 Cup Fresh Basil
  • 3 – 4 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup plus 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive
  • 1/3 Cup Dry White Wine
  • 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt or to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Pasta Water


Grate two heirloom tomatoes with a cheese grater by cutting in half, grating, then discarding the skin and set aside.

Dice remaining three tomatoes and mince the basil then set aside.

 Mince garlic and saute in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until lightly golden, on medium-low heat, stirring often.

When the garlic turns golden add dry white wine and let reduce until syrupy.

While wine is reducing add some salt and some olive oil to a pot of water and bring to a boil for the pasta then add the pasta.

Add grated and diced tomatoes to the garlic then add the olive oil, sea salt and add the basil a little at a time.

Cook until tomatoes are hot and soft.

When the pasta is a tiny bit undercooked from how you like it add to the sauce with the two tablespoons of pasta water and cook until pasta is done.

      Thank you Rhea! We are blessed for sure, we have them almost year round. I am going to the farmers market today in hopes for one last bag. Fingers crossed : )
