      Loved the idea of a quick and simple meal coming together in less than 15 minutes. Perfect for those times when you come in late and need something quick. I used gemelli pasta because of a general preference for shapes over strands. Also did a much finer dice on the tomato as 1 inch pieces just seemed too big for a plum tomato. Mixed together the tomato, oil and basil together and let it sit while the pasta cooked. I added extra tomato and was glad because my noodles would have looked a little naked otherwise. The results were good but the flavors were a little flat for me. Wasn't sure what to do with the garlic so I mashed it and put it back in with the pasta. Also added a little black pepper and a bit of crushed red pepper. That helped. I really think this has great possibilities and will tinker with it 'til its a dish I love. Thanks for inspiring me and sharing this recipe.
