Fresh Tomato and Basil Pasta

I found this great recipe from Here. I wanted something light and healthy last week on one of our warm summer days. This hit the spot. I adapted it slightly by adding a spoonful of pesto to it. If you want something light for dinner try this!!!

Fresh Tomato and Basil Pasta
2 large ripe, firm tomatoes, diced (2 cups)
1 T fresh basil or 1 tsp dried basil
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
8 oz your favorite kind of pasta
Parmesan chees
Optional~ spoonful of pesto for each serving (a must have for me)

Mix together the diced tomatoes, chopped basil, garlic, salt and pepper. Let marinate on the counter for 30 minutes. Cook past al dente. Drain and toss with the tomato mixture and the pesto. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top. Enjoy!!!
