Pasta Fasta

Super easy after a busy day!  This recipe is taken from The Best of Bridge, the Best of the Best and more.

2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
2 garlic cloves
3 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
enough rotini or penne for 2
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

In the morning: Combine tomatoes, basil, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Cover and leave to marinade on the counter.

Dinnertime: Cook the pasta according to package directions.  Drain and return to pot.  Add marinated veggies (don’t drain) and cheese.  Toss, cover.  Set aside for 5 minutes, until cheeses melt.  Place in your favorite pasta bowl and serve immediately.
