Tomato Basil Pasta

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Jean R

An easy, summer pasta dish with a no-cook sauce featuring fresh tomatoes and basil. For a variation you can add your favorite cheese at the table. Both feta and parmesan would work well.

This is so simple and so delicious. I sprinkled parmesan over the pasta and added a little julienned basil. Great meal for those hot summer days when you don't want to cook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix first three ingredients in a bowl. Add a little salt and pepper to taste. Let stand at room temperature for about 1 hour. The tomatoes will release their juice and the flavors will blend, creating a sauce.
  2. About 15 minutes before you are ready to serve bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot.
  3. Add linguine to the boiling water. Return to a boil; cook uncovered for 10-12 minutes.
  4. When pasta has finished cooking drain thoroughly and add tomato mixture. Serve immediately.
