Summer tomato pasta
Fresh and super easy way to use great ripe fresh tomatoes. To make a one dish meal out of it add a fresh diced mozzarella to the marinated tomatoes before adding the hot pasta. The cheese melts from the heat of the pasta and makes it even more delicious.. If you don't have fresh home frown tomatoes look for the best ripest tomatoes you can find in the store. If you can't get fresh basil, don't use dried! You can substitute oregano or fresh chopped parsley.
