Fresh Tomato Pasta

“This is an extremely simple pasta recipe that I love to make when I don’t really feel like cooking! I use rigatoni, but you can use whatever pasta you prefer. This is especially delicious with tomatoes fresh from your garden. Serve with garlic bread and a simple lettuce salad with Italian dressing.”

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package dry pasta
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt

Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat.
  2. Coarsely chop the tomato and transfer to a small bowl. Sprinkle the tomato chunks with basil, olive oil, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Once the water is boiling, stir in the rigatoni, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander, and then return the pasta to the pot.
  4. Pour the tomato mixture over the pasta and toss to mix.
