This is a light, summery dinner with little preparation involved, and easy clean up. It came from an extremely old issue of Shape magazine (sorry, can't recall which issue!).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Marinate tomatoes, oil garlic and basil together for 2 hours.
  2. Remove garlic.
  3. Add salt, pepper, and a little cayenne to taste.
  4. Toss with hot, drained linguini.
  5. (Marinate on countertop, so it will be at room temperature when serving on linguini).

I followed this loosely and it came out excellent. I marinated as directed then just before the pasta was ready, I sauteed extra garlic in a skillet with extra olive oil, a little butter, and some crushed red pepper, then added a little dry sherry and reduced, then added all of the marinating tomato mixture. Once that was hot, I added the almost done pasta along with a little of the pasta water and tossed over medium-high heat until it was good and bubbly. Grated a little parmesan over the final result and served. Delicioso! Thanks.
