  • 1 large ripe tomato, diced
  • handful of basil, julienned (cut into thin strips)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Parmigiano cheese
  • 12 ozs linguine or other pasta


  1. Begin cooking the pasta according to package instructions.
  2. Make the salsa: combine the diced tomato, basil, garlic and olive oil in a bowl. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside while the pasta finishes cooking.
  3. When the pasta is cooked, drain the pasta. Toss immediately with the remaining tablespoon olive oil and the Parmigiano cheese.
