Recipe Friday: Tomato, Basil, and Garlic Pasta

Summer has finally arrived, and the heat is setting in. So, here is a SUPER EASY, light, and refreshing sauce for your pasta. Actually, I use the term sauce loosely. It's more like delicious chunks of stuff with which to top your pasta. Enjoy!

6-8 tomatoes, cut into sixths
1 clove garlic, minced
6-8 leaves of basil
1/4 cup of olive oil (approx)
Salt and Pepper (needed for every recipe)
1 lb of chilled but cooked pasta (Use noodles like rotelle, farfalle, etc. Do not use spaghetti or fettuccini.)
shredded or shaved parmesan

1) Mix the tomatoes, garlic, basil, and most of the oil in a large bowl.
2) Add salt and pepper to taste
3) Toss with the pasta, if needed add some extra olive oil to thin the sauce.
4) Top with parmesan to taste
5) Enjoy!
