This easy recipe for pasta with fresh tomatoes and mint leaves has got a lot of flavor it is made without cheese.
This is so simple and easy to make and you can have a delicious vegetarian dinner or lunch easily. I used fresh mint leaves in cooking as well as garnishing this colorful pasta.
The sauce I used is marinara sauce for pasta which was great when combined with the flavor of fresh mint leaves.
I mixed the marinara sauce with chopped mint leaves and cooked the mixture for very few minutes and added a few spices, then mixed it with the cooked pasta. And it was delicious!
I used linguine pasta to make this mint pasta with fresh tomatoes. The linguine pasta, which looks much like spaghetti noodles is slightly different noodles as they are kind of flat noodles.
This lemony mint pasta using linguine pasta is delicious but you can try this recipe with any kind of pasta you like. If you are vegan, you may use any vegan noodles to make this recipe vegan.
