Ingredients for preparing pasta.

Margherita Pasta

By about Thursday I start to run out of steam so I want to make a quick, but delicious dinner.  Here is a super simple pasta recipe that anyone can make. 

INGREDIENTS

1/4 Cup Butter

6 Ounces Uncooked Penne Pasta

3 Teaspoons Fresh Garlic

2 Medium Chopped Tomatoes

1/4 Cups Thinly Sliced Fresh Basil

1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese

Cook pasta and drain; return to pan and keep warm. Melt butter in a 12 inch skillet over a medium-high heat until sizzling. Add garlic; cook for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and basil; cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add pasta and cheese. Stir until combined. Serve immediately.  Serves 4
