Well, I have always adored traditional Pasta Alla Checca but using lemon basil instead of regular sweet basil added a whole new dimension to an already wonderful and healthy pasta dish. You simply must give it a try!
Combine tomatoes, garlic, lemon basil and olive oil in a lidded plastic storage container. Stir in salt. Cover and sit at room temperature for two to four hours, gently stirring once or twice.
Cook pasta until "al dente" according to package directions. Drain. Place hot pasta on serving plates, top with sauce, garnish with Parmesan cheese and serve.

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