I saw this once on Everyday Italian with Giada De Laurentiis. I can't find it on food.com but this is how I make it (from memory) and it's delicious so I'm assuming it's almost the same! I change my ingredient amounts every time depending on my mood, so it's all just an estimation.

  3. Add tomatoes and basil and saute until tomatoes are tender. (about 5 minutes).
  4. Stir in salt and pepper.
  5. Add cheese cubes, stir quickly, and pour over pasta. (Cubes should be slightly melted but still retaining their shape).
  6. Serve and enjoy!
