Fresh Tomato Pasta

Rated as 4.37 out of 5 Stars

"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

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.
