1 16oz. box penne pasta. Cook as directed on the box.
6 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 pound fresh mozzarella, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
5-6 fresh Basil leaves, chopped
1/2-3/4 cups olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Salt and Pepper to taste
While pasta is cooking in salted water, put your olive oil and garlic in a small skillet and set to low. This is to infuse the oil with the garlic flavor. Don't burn the garlic. While that's heating and your pasta is cooking, chop the tomatoes, cheese and basil. Put them in a large bowl. Once the pasta is done and your oil is heated add everything together and mix. Salt and pepper.
