Fresh from the Garden Tomato Pasta

These tomatoes are not fresh from the garden (since I don’t have a garden yet) but they are fresh from Winco!  This recipe from Kraft really tastes best though with tomatoes from your garden and you can serve it hot for dinner tonight and then cold for lunch tomorrow; tastes great either way!

3 cups rotini pasta, cooked

2 cloves garlic, minced (I just use my garlic press)

1 medium onion, chopped

1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette dressing (I just used Italian because that was what I had)

4 cups coarsely chopped tomatoes (I used grape, also because it was what I had)

1/2 cup chopped fresh basil (I just threw some dried in)

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook garlic and onion in dressing 2 minutes or until softened.  Add tomatoes and cook 2 more minutes.  Toss with pasta and remaining ingredients.  Serve warm.
