"This garlic and basil pasta recipe is a wonderful way to use your bounty of late-summer tomatoes," suggests Susan Jones of Downers Grove, Illinois. "Ideal as a side dish for grilled chicken, it also makes a great light supper when coupled with a salad and breadsticks."

"It was excellent.The only thing I changed was use olive oil instead of butter. Will definitely make again."

"This was very good and delicious. I will make again. I had left overs so I will see how well it freezes. If freezing doesn't work, next time I will try cutting it by half. I used 4 tablespoons of butter and 3 garlic cloves. I felt the pasta needed more moisture and I always add more garlic than a recipe calls for. I loved how easy this recipe was to whip up. I will keep it handy for tomato season."

"This has been a summer favorite in our house for years. Perfect towards the end of the growing season when we have lots of tomatoes. I dice and fry chicken in butter and toss into the mix and we eat it as a meal. I also use whole wheat thin spaghetti noodles as we prefer the noodles thinner. The leftovers are just as good as when it is first made."
