Ingredients

  • 12 ounces (one box) dry linguine or any other long, thin pasta
  • 4-5 large beefsteak tomatoes can use on the vine tomatoes, but may need 1-2 more
  • 1 cup fresh basil chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese cubed or crumbled
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add tomatoes to boiling water for 30-60 seconds each, then remove from pot and run under cold water to prevent from cooking further.
  • Peel and chop the blanched tomatoes and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add chopped basil, minced garlic, feta cheese, and olive oil, salt and pepper then mix to combine.
  • Serve immediately (don't store in the fridge until serving) with cooked pasta and enjoy!
  • If you have leftovers, mix with pasta noodles and store in fridge for 2-3 days. Enjoy as a pasta salad.

Notes
