Linguine with No-cook Tomato Sauce

I like to bring this salad to potlucks. I always get requests for the recipe. This is a great salad, especially if you like basil!

Serves 8

1 lb linguine pasta

Sauce Ingredients:

3 c. chopped ripe tomatoes
4 oz mozzarella cheese, cut in 1/2 in. cubes
1/3 c fresh basil leaves, chopped (If I don’t have fresh I use a smaller amount of dried)
1/4 c olive oil
1/2 t minced garlic
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 Bring a large pot of water to a boil
2 Meanwhile put all the Sauce ingredients in a large serving bowl. Toss gently to mix and coat. (I don’t add cheese until after pasta has cooled. Otherwise it melts!)
3 Cook linguine as package directs. Drain well; add to sauce and toss to mix. (When cooled add cheese)
