I found this recipe through Yahoo recipes and it is a favorite in our house!! For more wonderful recipes visit my friend Nini's blog every Thursday. This week's Tortilla Soup is particularly delicious!!
Marinated Tomatoes with Linguine
1 lb linguine (or other long pasta)
6-8 small tomatoes
1 clove garlic (chopped or crushed)
1 T chopped basil
6 oz grated fresh mozzarella
olive oil to cover
salt and pepper
Bring a small pot of water to boil and submerge tomatoes for 30 seconds, then remove. Slit the skins with a knife; they should slip off easily. Halve the tomatoes and remove the pulp and the seeds. Chop the tomato flesh.
In a large serving bowl add the tomatoes, basil, garlic, and olive oil, salt, pepper to taste. Allow to marinate for at least 30 min, longer if possible.
Cook the pasta until al dente in salty water. Drain and add to the tomato mixture along with the grated mozzarella. Toss well and serve immediately. Serves 4.
