Pasta with tomatoes, Basil, and Parmesan

While I was hunting for a side dish for some chicken, I stumbled upon this simple recipe.  It is so easy, so fresh, and so tasty.  The fresh tomatoes and herbs are fantastic!  My husband and I loved it.  That is all.  :)

Pasta with Tomatoes, Basil, and Parmesan

1 lb plum tomatoes
1/4 c fresh basil leaves
1 T fresh parsley
1 T chopped garlic
1/4 c olive oil
course salt and ground pepper
1 lb spaghetti
grated Parmesan

Finely chop the tomatoes, basil, and parsley.  Add the garlic and oil.  Stir to combine.

Boil water and add the spaghetti.  Cook to al dente, according to the package directions.  Drain the pasta.

Toss the pasta with the tomato mixture.  Drizzle with a little more olive oil and top with parmesan cheese.
