Whether you're looking for a family supper or entertaining friends, we've covered a range of Italian pasta dishes for tomato lovers that are sure to impress on this Meatless Monday.

Having a repertoire of authentic italian dishes up your sleeve is always a good idea as a tasty way to satisfy a diverse culinary audience with limited cooking time.

In summer months tomatoes are full of flavour and bring another element to Italian pasta dishes. With such a wide variety of tomatoes to choose from always try to find best quality available as well as the right variety, whether suited to cooking or best eaten fresh, let the tomato do the talking.

If you are feeling really adventurous you could even try your hand at making your own pasta (see the pici with cherry tomatoes recipe below).

From Italian pasta salad to more complicated chef inspired dishes we have got Italian pasta dishes featuring tomatoes covered below:
