Fresh Tomato Pasta Sauce

fresh-tomato-pasta-sauceHere is another idea I got off the Katzcradul youtube channel. This young woman has some really good things to show. She has one of my favorite youtube channels.

When I first saw this recipe done I was skeptical. How could cold fresh cherry tomatoes make a good sauce for hot pasta?

Then it had balsamic vinegar another thing NOT A FAVORITE and sweet on pasta?
NEVER!

The reviews were very good so I decided to give it a try myself.
What can I say but it was FANTASTIC!

My hubby also gave it an A+ OKAY.
