Tony’s Summer Pasta

Submitted by: Karen C. Greenlee

Prep Time: approx. 10 Minutes
Cook Time: approx. 5 Minutes

” 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

and black pepper in medium bowl. Set aside.

2 Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions.

3 Drain pasta, and transfer to a serving bowl.
Toss with tomato mixture. Serve.

angel hair pasta, and garlic bread. ”

Ingredients
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dried oregano

2 Slice tofu into 1/4 inch thick slices, and place in bowl of cold water.
