Summer Pasta (Zach’s favorite)

If you are looking for a quick, easy, and delicious fast meal, then look no further. This is it!

Nothing goes better in the summer than fresh, home-grown tomatoes and basil. It’s one of our favorite combinations. I first had something similar to this in California many years ago and it has become a family favorite. (And yes, I forgot to make pictures….)
In a large bowl mix the following:
3 medium-large tomatoes, chopped
3/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4-1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (to your taste)
Cook 16 oz pasta to al dente. With tongs or pasta spoon, add to the above mixture. You want a little of the pasta water to incorporate with the sauce. Mix well and add freshly grated parmesan cheese to taste.
How easy is that?
