Fresh Tomato Pasta

One of my favorite dishes from my mother-in-law is her Fresh Tomato Basil Pasta, and it’s so simple to make. The recipe calls for just five ingredients, all of which are probably in your pantry right now. Super delicious, easy and, if you’re adventurous, it’s a great dish for adding toppings. Try it next time with some grilled chicken or shrimp. One last tip—you can never have too much garlic. Enjoy!
