When I'm homealone, when I'm in a hurry, when friends are having dinner at my place, or just for my family: it's always the right occasion to make this pasta. Believe me!
- 380 gram (0.84 pound) linguini or spaghetti
- 400 gram (0.89 pound) cherry tomatoes
- 2 hands of fresh basil
- 7 tablespoons extra virgin olive-oil
- 1 piece of garlic
- salt and pepper
Follow the cooking directions on the packaging of pasta to cook the pasta 'al dente' in a pan with salted water. While the pasta is cooking, halve the tomatoes and put them in a big bowl. If the basil leaves are really big, tear them in smaller pieces. Peel the garlic and cut it in little pieces. Add the basil, garlic and olive-oil to the bowl. Flavour it with salt and pepper. Now crush everything a bit. Drain the pasta when it's ready and then add it to the bowl. Mix everything and your pasta is ready!
