Garlicky Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

This is really simple, but really yummy, and super quick and healthy. I used shells for the pasta.

Total Prep Time: 24 minutes

3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
5 cups chopped plum tomatoes (about 2 lbs.)
6 cups hot cooked campanella (about 12 oz uncooked pasta)
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup (1 oz) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add garlic, saute' 30 seconds. Add tomatoes; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Add pasta and remaining ingredients, tossing gently to combine.

Yield: 6 servings
