Fresh Tomatoes and Basil with Hot Pasta

Fresh Tomatoes and Basil with Hot Pasta 

As the garden tomato and basil season winds down, here's one last great recipe for you to help you put your last few garden tomatoes and basil to good use!  My sister in law Dawn Ann shared this recipe with me years ago and it's still a favorite!

12-16 ounces favorite pasta ( i.e.  bow ties, spaghetti, linguine etc.)
1 cup Parmesan Cheese
4 tablespoons olive oil
4-6 cloves garlic, minced
bunch of fresh basil, chopped
4 large tomatoes, chopped
handful of pine nuts or sunflower seeds (optional) 
Cook pasta according to package directions and toss with the remaining ingredients.  Serve with a good crusty bread.
