First course - vegetarian
1 lb of pasta (your favorite one)
4 medium tomatoes really ripe
4 leaves of fresh basil, roughly chopped
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp of extravirgin olive oil
salt - pepper (optional)
Put a pot with water to boil.
In the mean time, dice the tomatoes, put them in a bowl with the garlic, the basil, salt, olive oil and pepper. Set aside.
When the water boils add salt and pasta, stir.
Now put a skillet on medium/high heat and, when it's warm, toss in it the tomatoes with thier juice, stirring.
Drain the pasta and toss it in the skillet with the tomatoes, sautee for a couple of minutes and serve.
When you sautee the pasta with the sauce, you can add chopped mozzarella in it.
If you don't like the tomato peel, peel them this way:
- make a cross on the bottom of the tomatoes
- put them in boiling water for 30 seconds
- take them out and the peel will come away easily.
