Fresh Tomato and Basil Pasta Salad is a perfect summertime light meal or side dish to bring to a backyard BBQ or potluck. The recipe serves four, but can be doubled to make a larger batch. I use a ton of garlic, I LOVE garlic. The grated Parmesan or Romano cheese finishes it off nicely.
The recipe calls for Penne Rigate, the pasta those little groves in it. I prefer the grooved pasta since the marinade grabs on better.
