Garlic and Basil Tomato Pasta

Garlic and Basil Tomato PastaSimple and fast!  This is a great recipe for using all those fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden!


1 pound uncooked whole wheat pasta (I like angel hair)

4-5 pounds tomatoes, large or cherry cut in half or bite size chunks

2 tablespoons garlic, minced

1/2 cup fresh chopped basil

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

Cook your noodles following the directions on the package.  In the meantime, chop the tomatoes, garlic and basil and place in large bowl with oil and butter.  Remove the noodles from the pot and strain.  Pour them while still hot over the tomato, basil mixture and let melt the butter.   Add salt and pepper to taste and the cheese.  Toss well and serve.
