Prawn and Heirloom Tomato Pasta

The produce available right now is so mouth-watering! All of the gorgeous squashes, pears, and apples are so inspiring and make me want to buy them without even having a purpose for them.

One of my favorites are the succulent heirloom tomatoes, in all of their vibrant colors. This dish features these gems, along with prawns, fresh basil and spinach.

For SCD, leave the spinach out and sauté it with some garlic and olive oil. Serve the tomato sauce and prawns over the sautéed spinach or brown rice pasta.
