Tomato-Basil Pasta Salad
1 lb rotini pasta
2 lbs plum tomatoes or 2 lbs roma tomatoes, diced
3 -4 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon salt
black pepper, to taste 1/ 2 cup olive oil fresh basil leaf, chopped, to taste ( I use about 1/ 3 cup)
1/ 4 cup grated parmesan cheese (fresh is best)
Directions: First of all, take basil, olive oil and mix them together with tomatoes, garlic, salt and pepper. Then keep in refrigerator for two hrs. Then prepare pasta as instructed on the package. After this, rinse and drain properly. Then take pasta and mix it with tomato mixture till well blended. Use parmesan cheese for sprinkling.
