Tasty Tomato Side: Fusilli With Summer Tomato Sauce

Part classic pasta with tomato sauce, part summer pasta salad, this easy side dish is super fast to make and divinely delicious. The no bake sauce comes together in minutes with the aid of your handy, dandy blitzing machine and the flavors of Italy are highlighted in a trio of colors.

2 pounds ripe tomatoes (about 4), chopped
1 large clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
2/3 cup lightly packed fresh basil
1 pound fusilli
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

  1. In a food processor or blender, combine the tomatoes, garlic, oil, salt, and pepper and puree. Add the basil and pulse just to mix.
  2. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the fusilli until just done, about 13 minutes.
  3. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce and the Parmesan cheese. Let sit for about 1 minute to allow the pasta to absorb some of the liquid. Serve with additional Parmesan.

Serves 4.
