    Vina's Note:

    I have always loved Olive Garden's Pomodoro. This is what I came up with when I experimented at home. This does not heat up your kitchen and is a light supper dish for those hot summer evenings. If you like spice, add some crushed red pepper flakes to taste. Just don't use anything but the freshest ingredients--you'll end up with something that tastes pasty/chemical/bitter/etc.

      Had this with meow's tortellini and it was terrific. I did add a bit of crushed red pepper and cut back on the olive oil. So fast, so simple, so delicious!

      I'm a professional baker - but weirdly not an expert cook and I'm not sure what I did wrong but this turned out quite bland for me. My tomatoes wouldnt mix into the pasta and sat on the bottom of the bowl, and I used even more fresh basil than called for and still it was bland. I loved the taste of the fresh pram. cheese. But felt it needed something else.
