The combination of hot pasta and fresh, cool, ripe tomatoes, basil and garlic is fabulous. Do not serve cheese with this sauce.
3-4 large, ripe eating tomatoes
1/2 cup shredded basil leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup good olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 pound spaghetti
Dice tomatoes and mix ingredients together. Chill for 1 hour. Cook pasta “al dente”. Drain and pout into pasta bowl. Pour Salsa Cruda over, toss and serve immediately. Marvelous summer meal. Serves 4
