Serves 6

My friend Sara reminds me that technically, bruschetta means 'grilled bread' and NOT the tomato, basil garlic deal that you put on top. Happy Sara? That having been said, this recipe is bruschetta pasta - pasta with tomatoes, basil and garlic - as apposed to pasta with grilled bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound pasta, spaghetti works nice here
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 dozen large basil leaves, torn into smallish pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste

Steps

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions
  2. Remove seeds from tomatoes and chop roughly
  3. Put tomatoes in a bowl with the garlic, basil and olive oil - season with salt & pepper
  4. Drain pasta, add to bowl and toss well with tomato mixture
  5. Serve with shredded parmesan cheese - and maybe some grilled bread just to make Sara happy
