Pasta with Tomatoes, Basil and Mozarella
One of my favorite summer dishes to make is a simple pasta dish that uses fresh tomatoes. I cook any kind of pasta according to package directions. Then in a separate pan I saute minced garlic in a tablespoon or two of olive oil for one minute then add in multiple chopped tomatoes. I normally use at least 4 or 5 large tomatoes but it really depends on the size of your tomatoes and how much tomato you really want. I cook the tomatoes down for a a minute or two then season with salt and pepper. Toss with the pasta, add some chopped basil and fresh mozarella. That's it!
