The burst tomato pasta aside from its name really is a gift and a treat! Not only is it easy but it is such a simple dish and the flavours are just soooooo good and not to mention clean as well. Enjoying a huge bowl of this pasta will not leave you stoggy and feeling like you ate a cow. Sweet, tangy and vibrant, if summer were to have a dish this would be it!

Buttt this does not have exclusively be a summer dish, it is so quick and easy it could be a dish for any time of the year, any time of the day. Perfect for taking to work, a quick lunch or even a semi-sinful late night snack depending on how much cheese you decide to go for.
