I love easy pasta dishes. They are perfect for a quick dinner that doesn’t look like it’s phoned it. This pasta mixes a deliciously quick and simple mix that coats the pasta perfectly and tastes amazing! Tomato and basil go perfectly together and the addition of garlic makes you feel like you have a little bite of bruschetta in your mouth! I cooked the tomatoes till bursting to make an extra explosion of flavor! I recommend this for any night of the week and you can use any pasta that you wish for a delicious meal for the whole family.

1/4 chopped basil
2 cloves garlic, minced
