1 Goody Spaghetti pasta pack, cooked to pack instructions
6 Heirloom tomatoes, medium sized roughly chopped
4 Garlic cloves, large finely minced
10 Basil leaves, cut into ribbons (reserve a little for garnish)
½ Cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 Cup grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish (optional)
1.Place tomatoes, garlic, basil, and olive oil into a large bowl. Stir mixture until all tomatoes are coated with oil and garlic is evenly distributed throughout the sauce.
2.Cover the bowl and let everything marinate for about four hours on the counter at room temperature. Add salt and pepper to taste. The tomatoes will release their juices and flavors will meld. If you can't wait the full four hours, it's still tasty right out of the mixing bowl!
3.In a serving plate, place the pasta and add the tomato mixture, top it with more fresh basil and Parmesan cheese, if desired.
