Tomato Capellini

Summer is almost ending, so I must celebrate this summer’s harvest by using lots of summer veggies. It was hot summer night (very rare for here in Seattle) so I cooked cold tomato pasta!

Zesty lime juice give great flavor to sweet tomato and herbal flavor of basil, so if you missed eating cold pasta in this season, now is the time to try it out!


Ingredients for 2


  • 160g of angel hair pasta
  • 2 large ripe tomato
  • ½ of large onion
  • 1 ~2 lime
  • Some basil leaves
  • Some salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Some leaf lettuce


  1. Chop veggies
  2. Cook pasta

  3. Combine veggies
    In a large bowl, put chopped veggies, lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.

    Toss them and add pasta. Mix well and let it chill in ref about 30 min.

  4. Set out dish
    Put leaf lettuce carpet on your plate, and place pasta in the center of plate.

    Open up your favorite wine bottle, and say bon appetite!

By the way, it’s been while to buy 2 bucks chuck at trader joe’s, and I was surprised they increased the price…in another 10 years, is it possible to be 3 bucks chuck? (; 😉
