Fresh Tomato Pasta

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."

  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.

We did not care for this. Too bland. I guess we like a stronger tomato taste with our pasta. Will not do it again

This is one of my favorite "end of the summer when tomatoes are abundant and delicious" recipes. I use more than one tomato per 8 ounces of pasta, lots of garlic, and fresh basil. Leftover sau...

Not bad. I used cherry tomatoes, halved, but otherwise followed the recipe as written.

Very simple ingredients but very good results! I had everything on hand so I tried this one. Used olive oil and garlic powder. Thanks! Added some grated parmesan to it, too.

Quick and easy Italian dish. I use lots of garlic. Keep it simple.

It's easy and quick to make. I used a tbs of olive oil.

My daughter does not like garlic, so I couldn't add the garlic to our pasta water. However, I followed the recipe as written and sprinkled garlic salt on mine after plated and it was fantastic....
