Here is a quick, uncooked sauce for pasta. We make this all the time, and never exactly the same twice.
Amounts of the ingredients are completely subjective—a little more of this or not so much of that as your tastes or supplies dictate.
Here is the basic method:
Chop up a few tomatoes and add some olive oil, maybe a quarter cup of oil. Cut up a lot of basil and add that to the tomatoes and oil.
You may want to use some parsley along with the basil. Peel and press or chop some garlic and add that, too.
(Daughter Margaret just said “As much garlic as you can stand!”) Now stir in some Romano or Parmesan cheese.
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let that associate for a while as you boil water for pasta. We favor linguine.
Serve the sauce cold on the hot pasta. This is delicious, fresh, and healthful.
