In case you haven't realized, I am a pasta FANATIC. It's not unusual for me to eat pasta three meals a day. While not the most healthy of my habits, I justify it by running 40 miles a week. That's also my excuse for eating copious amounts of chocolate on a daily basis.
This dish is ideal for summer. It does not have to be heated to be enjoyed. Simple flavors, delicious with fresh garden tomatoes and basil.
Fresh fresh fresh
1 lb of pasta
2 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup olive oil
1 fresh basket of cherry tomatoes
8 fresh basil leaves, chopped finely
grated parmesan cheese
Too simple and easy to not make.
When the pasta is just boiled and still hot, mix it with the olive oil. Slice the tomatoes in half and mix with minced garlic and basil. When ready to eat, top with parmesan cheese.
