Author Notes: I love raw tomato sauce with pasta during the summer and make it a variety of ways - with basil- with spicy peppers - with parmesan - with feta. Usually I use parsley and basil for the sauce, but this time I added mint and a little sugar to bring out the sweetness of the tomato and mint when hit with the warm pasta. Easy and tasty for these warm days of summer!inpatskitchen
