Looking for a meal you can whip off after a half dozen G&Ts? Then I have the recipe for you!
Turn on the broiler. Take five or six large roma tomatoes. Chop; spread on a bake sheet, drizzle with olive oil and salt and sprinkle a few gloves of garlic around. Place under the broiler.
Put a pot of pasta water on to boil. Chop one whole bunch of basil. Once the pasta water has boiled, add the pasta of your choice. Once the pasta is close to bing finished, pull the tomatoes out of the oven and blend. Stir in chopped basil, check seasoning. Drain pasta and serve topped with tomato sauce and and optional addition of soft french cheese. (makes it rich and satisfying versus light and refreshing.)
