Deeli's Pasta Alla Checca

This is a very easy and yummy summer pasta dish :-)

Ingredients

  • 4 tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Ad
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh grated parmesan cheese to taste
  • 1 lb angel hair pasta

Directions

Combine tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil in glass or plastic bowl. Stir in salt. Cover and sit at room temperature for about two to four hours.

Cook pasta until "al dente". Drain. Pour uncooked sauce over hot pasta and toss. Add grated parmesan cheese.

Note: The sauce will stay fresh in the fridge for up to three days but be sure to allow the room temperature marinating to occur first. All that remains is to cook up the pasta and "slightly" heat the sauce in microwave.

Serve with a butter lettuce salad with red wine vinegar, light olive oil and grated parmesan and French bread smothered in unsalted butter.

Serves Four

We use this recipe all summer. Sometimes I add shredded chicken or substitute penne pasta. It is good hot or cold. A very versatile recipe.

We eat this same recipe all summer. Sometimes I substitute penne pasta. Sometimes I add shredded chicken. It is good hot or served cold like pasta salad.
