Ah, when it comes to pasta, the Bastianich family knows a thing or two. That’s why we couldn’t resist asking Joe Bastianich of Greenwich, Conn., and his sister Tanya of New York City to share their recipe for a fresh, raw tomato sauce packed with fresh basil and garlic and bejeweled with a scattering of Grana Padano cheese. It’s summer on a plate, just as it’s done in Italy, and all you have to do is boil water. The Bastianich children of Lidia are coauthors of the book Healthy Pasta, featuring recipes that are no more than 500 calories per serving. Do what the Italians do — serve pasta as a course, not an entrée. You can have it more often that way!
