Fresh tomatoes are so incredible right now, who wants to cook them?
In this easy pasta dish, chunks of red, ripe tomatoes are combined with fresh basil leaves, olive oil, garlic and diced fresh mozzarella, then tossed with hot penne. This quick sauce easily beats one that would simmer for a long time, heating up the kitchen. Only the pasta needs cooking; start out with the hottest tap water so that when heated, it quickly comes to a boil.
Because the sauce is a bit garlicky, balance out the meal with a baguette and a salad tossed with a parsley vinaigrette.
