Unless said tomatoes have a party with garlic, basil, and parmesan.

Simply toss all that freshness together, give it a sprinkle of seasoning, and let it rest a bit for flavors and juices to develop.

I expected this sauce to turn out fairly good, but we were all surprised by how flavorful and fresh it turned out.

The boys gobbled up their plates of this no-cook tomato garlic sauce, tossed with tender pasta.

Any pasta will do. I ran out of angel hair, so bowtie it was.
