Santorini Style-Summer Pasta with Lemon and Cherry Tomatoes


Wasn’t the weather cloudy and sticky today? The kind of weather that makes you think of Santorini? Santorini!! I haven’t even been there, but I am wishing to go soon. I dream of staying in those low lying cubicle houses made of stone and whitewashed or limewashed with various volcanic ashes as colours. Drink wine with my husband and cook with their unique and rewarded produce. Actually their Cherry tomatoes are renowned of their taste and sweetness and intensely red. A special request was made by husband today to make a tomato based pasta dish with some salad, though I didn’t want to over-do it with the tomatoes. I wanted it light, fresh and vegan so I just added a few fresh cherry tomatoes, shallots and garlic with a squeeze of lemon.The sweetness of the cherry tomatoes just makes it that special.

When you make this pasta at home think about me and my dream. A beautiful dream that has yet to come true. For now though I am happy to eat my oh vegan pasta while my husband grills some sausages to eat with. But I don’t need no sausage. A fresh salad was just enough to make a complete meal for me. I can’t say enough about the simplicity of this dish. I would advice you to get a good quality pasta. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did

        No ,I am in our litle house near the beach,yesterday it was 33 dgr,and in the city even hotter, but today is much better, only 23 dgr ,even less at the moment because of a little thunderstorm, but the sun will come back pretty soon but this temperature is much better for me! If the wind won’t change again and keeps coming from the sea, it is here much better ,then in the city at the moment.
        We are here quite often, although I like being in the city ass well.
        It is really a privelage to have two places !
        Love from Holland,
