This 20-minute bruschetta pasta is a vegetarian meal that's filled with fresh flavors of ripe tomatoes, tangy balsamic vinegar, garden-fresh basil, and fruity olive oil piled high on top of al dente pasta tossed in a quick herby balsamic cream sauce.
Salt your pasta water generously. Salting the water that the pasta cooks in is the first chance you have to add flavor to the pasta. Add 2-4 tablespoons of Kosher salt (or more!) to the pot of boiling water before you add the pasta. Then cook pasta according to package directions. You will be amazed at how much more flavorful your entire dish is when you've salted your pasta water!
