Fresh Tomato Pasta

This is my all time favorite summer dish!!
Pasta (angel hair is best in my opinion, although not shown in pict.)
Fresh Tomatoes, diced (store bought won't cut it)
Fresh Basil
Garlic (I use the pre-chopped, refrigerated)
Butter (absolutely no margarine!)
Parmesan Cheese
Salt & Pepper
While pasta is cooking dice tomatoes.
In a sauce pan melt butter (I usually do about 2 TBS per person). Add chopped garlic (1 tsp per cube of butter), basil (8-my leaves were fairly small). As Emeril would say let it get happy.
Drain pasta and put in serving bowl. Pour butter mixture over pasta and stir to coat noodles. Add chopped tomatoes (I prefer my tomatoes cold). Salt & Pepper to taste, and top with Parmesan cheese.

  1. We are having this for dinner tonight! I have always cooked my tomatoes with the butter for a few minutes, but I'm going to try them cold this time. Thanks for all the fun recipes.
