Fabulous. Perfect for a hot summer's evening, or anytime. Six stars at least :-)!

Great way to use summer's bounty of tomatoes. Made for a light, meatless dinner. I used a mixture of red cherry tomatoes, yellow cherry tomatoes, and regular tomatoes. Topped with crushed red pepper for a kick.

A summertime treat when using fresh ingredients right out of the garden. Simple to make and tastes fantastic! We refer to this recipe as Margherita Pasta Sauce . NOTE: Since the sauce will tend to cool off the pasta, we simply add the sauce into the pot of drained pasta and heat for a few minutes.

What can I say? This is a perfect recipe and so simple! I look forward to making this with tomatoes from my garden this summer. But I am thankful for hothouse tomatoes now! :) Using freshly grated Parmesan cheese and freshly grated black pepper is a must!
