(Los Angeles Times)

Fill a large pot with hot tap water, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and salt to taste. Cook the pasta until al dente, about 13 minutes.


While the pasta cooks, place the tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, mozzarella, 2 teaspoons of salt, pepper to taste and the basil into a large serving bowl.


Drain the pasta and immediately add it to the serving bowl. Toss and serve.

If you use cherry tomatoes, leave small tomatoes whole and cut large tomatoes in half.
