QUICK TOMATO-BASIL PASTA

15-oz can diced tomatoes or 1 pound diced fresh Roma (pear) tomatoes.
2 large minced garlic gloves
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tablespoons dried basil or half a dozen fresh leaves thinly sliced
8 ounces thick pasta such as penne, fusilli or ziti

Boil water and cook pasta.

Mix tomatoes, olive oil and minced garlic in sauce pan and heat.
Add dried basil and stir. (If using fresh basil, add at end).

Drain pasta and place in bowls. Spoon on sauce and top with freshly
grated parmesan or asiago cheese.

Variations: For more zip, add a dash of red pepper flakes when
cooking tomatoes. For a meat course, dice two boneless chicken
breasts and saute them in 1 tablespoon olive oil and one minced
garlic clove. For a vegetarian main course add zucchini rounds or
thin asparagus spears and cook them in the tomato sauce.
