Awesome Pasta



This is a pasta recipe that my son-in-law makes. And it IS awesome! I remember the first time I made it....it was SO good we couldn't stop eating it. I love to make it when the tomatoes are in season and the basil is garden fresh. It's easy and so quick to throw together...serve it with bread sticks and its a great meal.


Awesome Pasta



4 cloves garlic,minced


1/4 c. olive oil


8 oz. fresh mozzarella, cubed


1 c. grated Parmesan cheese


2-3 chopped tomatoes


black olives, sliced


1 pkg. basil, torn


1/2 lb. penne


Boil noodles. Combine tomatoes, olive oil and garlic in a pot. Start heating it just before the pasta is done cooking. Drain the pasta. Pour the hot pasta into the other pot and add the cheeses, olives, and some salt and pepper. Cover and let the cheese melt a bit. Add basil,top with some more Parmesan and serve.
