Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes, Onions and Cheese

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 pounds tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 onion, diced, depending on how much you like onion--or leave it out!
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound mozzarella, cubed or shredded Cheddar cheese
  • basil to taste, chopped start with 3/4 cup or so
  • salt to taste
  • 1 pound fettuccine, sea shell, or other pasta

Instructions

  • Put the olive oil, tomatoes, onion, mozzarella, basil, and salt in a bowl and mix together. Let stand at room temperature an hour or so.
  • Cook the pasta and drain, then stir into the tomato mixture.
  • Variation: Use cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella. Add some chopped parsley and crushed red pepper. Omit the pasta, cut down on the cheese, and serve it as a tomato salad on the side!
