” Tony is my husband. He brought home a recipe he had gotten
from someone at work, and it was adapted over time to this recipe —
so I named it “Tony’s Summer Pasta”. The tomatoes and cheese are
marinated in oil, basil, and garlic, and then tossed with the hot
linguine. The tomatoes are warmed and the cheese melts ever so slightly,
creating a simple but delectable meal. ”

Ingredients
1 (16 ounce) package linguini pasta
6 Roma tomatoes
1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
6 cloves garlic, minced
