Fresh Tomato Pasta

Here is yet another fantastic quick fix for dinner.  From start to finish I would say that it only took me about 15 minutes to assemble, make and serve this dish.  And for another bonus, it basically all came from my own garden.  I just love the simplicity's of it all.  With the light fresh sauce and the delicate pasta.  A perfect pair together making this pasta dish ultimately balanced and delicious.

1 lb. of uncooked angel hair pasta
5-6 T. of extra virgin olive oil
7-8 Roma tomatoes (chopped)
4 small cloves of garlic (minced)
2 T. of fresh basil (chopped)
sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
1/8 tsp. of crushed red pepper flakes
fresh grated Parmesan cheese for garnish

-Bring a large stockpot of water to a roaring boil and add in a sprinkle of salt and the pasta.  Cook pasta about 3-4 minutes for Au dente'.  Meanwhile heat your e.v.o. in a large saucepan over high heat.  Once your oil is very hot, add in the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat some and simmer for about 3 minutes.  Strain your Au dente' pasta and fold it into the saucepan.  Garnish with Parmesan cheese.  Serves 4.  Enjoy!  I know we did :)
