Total time 20 mins
Yield 4 first-course servings
Jere and Emilee Gettle love the Green Zebra tomato, which is as sweet as red ones but with a citrusy tang. They toss it with yellow tomatoes for a colorful, uncooked pasta sauce.


  • 2 tablespoons pure olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 (large) shallots, minced
  • 1 pound yellow tomatoes, diced
  • 1 pound ripe green heirloom tomatoes such as Green Zebra, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 2 sage leaves, finely chopped
  • Salt
  • 1/2 pound angel hair pasta
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature, or 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

How to Make It

  1. In a skillet, heat the oil. Add the garlic and cook over low heat until fragrant, 2 minutes. Add the shallots and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, 4 minutes.

  2. In a bowl, toss the tomatoes with the garlic, shallots, basil and sage. Season with salt.

  3. In a pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta until al dente; drain and transfer to the large bowl. Toss well with the butter; serve.
