Here’s a simple but elegant, lunch or dinner dish that’s deceptively easy, eye-catching and full of colorful, fresh tomatoes and basil.

It’s a Linguine Caprese, which takes its name from the island of Capri in southern Italy and is a pasta-based version of the popular salad that combines tomatoes, basil and mozzarella.

This is a vegetarian dish, though it’s hearty enough to fill you up for dinner. If your family insists on a serving of meat, a simple grilled chicken breast or baked chicken will make for a lovely and satisfying meal.
