Well, I bought a few too many. After making our mini pizzas, we ended up with quite a few extra tomatoes. Since I had a little extra basil too, I had to put them to good use. I made one of my favorite pasta dishes.
I don’t actually have a recipe for this. I just throw stuff together. I cut up all of the tomatoes, and the rest of the basil I had, and put them in a bowl. Then, I drizzled a little olive oil over the top, and sprinkled a bit of salt in the bowl. I let the mixture sit for a bit while I boiled the noodles. In the end, I tossed the olive oil mixture with the noodles, and threw in some freshly shredded mozzarella. I topped it with a little chicken from the crockpot, and dinner was served. Quick, simple, and fresh. Perfect.
