Fresh Summer Pasta

My mom made this delicious pasta when I visited recently. It is one of her go-to recipes since it can be made in advance, uses the best of summer ingredients, and always is loved by her guests. Make it to your taste and enjoy the freshness and sweetness of summer's favorite fruit, the tomato. 

Fresh Tomato Pasta 
serves 4

2-3 large tomatoes, chopped
handful of fresh basil, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, smashed and finely minced
8-10 ounces brie or fresh mozzarella cheese, chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil 
salt and pepper
crushed red pepper (optional)
1 lb. fine linguine

In a large bowl, add all the ingredients except for the pasta. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add crushed red pepper to taste if you want some heat. Let sit at room temperature for one hour and up to all day. 

Cook the pasta according to package instructions, drain, and pour over the sauce. Toss to combine until cheese is melted and sauce and pasta are well mixed. 

Serve immediately with some cracked black pepper on top and crusty bread to soak up all that lovely sauce.
