Pasta/tomatoes done quickly

While sitting in Church this morning,my thought for dinner tonight was a light,but tasteful dish. Today’s treat! Pasta with fresh chopped tomatoes.Hmmm,one of Mama’s recipes that took less than the time it takes to boil water and cook the pasta.In a large pasta pot(8 quart) or larger fill with water about 3/4’s of the way and place on medium/high,add a little Italian virgin oil to water(this helps pasta from sticking),cover.While the water is boiling about 10 minutes or so,grab a large size skillet and place on medium heat.Grab tomatoes!I use Roma tomatoes for this dish,as taught from Mama.. these are the best tomatoes for cooking as a sauce.Wash and rinse the tomatoes than chop into 1/8 to 1/4 size.In the hot skillet pour enough Italian virgin oil to cover skillet add two heaping size spoonfuls of minced garlic,Mama used lots of garlic, as she would  tell me it’s good for your blood and (will kill all worms in your body)with a smile is what Mama would say!Don’t cook the garlic to long,just enough to give the garlic color,add Pasta to boiling water,remember your choice..I cook my pasta Ma Assolutamente Al Dente’..To the bite)..not over cooked or undercooked than add tomatoes to hot skillet and mix all together,tomatoes will breakdown…turn heat to low and cover.When pasta is done,drain and place into bowl.Grab tomatoes and pour over pasta dish,sprinkle a little Italian virgin oil(if desired) top with fresh basil/fresh parmesan cheese and serve…pass the Cherry Pepsi please and enjoy!Dessert later frozen Blackberry yogurt.Bon appetit  🙂
