This is one of my family's favorite meals-- it is so simple but so good. In the summer, fresh tomatoes and fresh basil from the garden are used, but I always use one can of tomatoes for the juice. Dried basil can also be substituted in the winter if necessary, but don't substitute on the myzithra! It is a Greek cheese with a wonderful flavor that absolutely makes this dish, use it very generously! You can find it in most delis now, grating it from a chunk is far preferable to the pre-grated, which is dried out. Hope this becomes one of your family's favorites too!

  1. Put linguini on to boil in large pot of salted water. In fairly large skillet, saute chopped garlic in olive oil. When lightly browned, add diced tomatoes with liquid. Chop basil and add to pan. Simmer while pasta is cooking. Arrange linguini on plates or pasta bowls with tomatoes over the top. Grate myzithra very generously over the top and garnish with a spring of fresh basil if you like.
