Linguine with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Arlene Murphy


When the summer tomatoes are plentiful, there is no better dish than this one to satisfy a hearty appetite. This dish can be prepared in the morning and the only cooking that has to be done is the cooking of the pasta. Serve with plenty of Italian bread and a nice bottle of wine. It would be smart to grow a basil plant or two at the beginning of the season. In that way, you would always have fresh basil for this dish.
