Easy Italian Pasta

This quick and easy Italian pasta is great recipe for using up garden tomatoes and fresh basil!  I created this dish because we had a lot of tomatoes that needed to be used.  We like this pasta so much that we've eaten it 3 or 4 times in the past few weeks.  My husband says it's like pizza in a pasta.  :-)

Easy Italian Pasta
4 medium tomatoes (diced)
1 handful of fresh Basil Leaves
1 handful fresh Spinach (optional)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
4 cloves garlic (minced or thinly sliced)
1 lb. noodles (I've used bowtie or penne)

Cook noodles according to box directions.  If using Spinach, drop into pot with noodles after they are done.  Drain.

While the noodles are cooking, combine olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic in a small pot .  Saute garlic over medium heat for about a minute.

Add tomatoes and basil and continue to cook for 3-5 minutes until desired tenderness.

Combine vegetables with noodles.  Top with shredded mozzarella.
