In order to be a proper "pasta alla checca" you must add mozzarella cut into little cubes!

Ingredients for 4 servings

2 pounds ripe tomatoes, about 6 medium (or more if you like a high ratio of tomatoes to pasta)

2 cloves garlic, crushed

¼ cup torn or sliced fresh basil leaves

¼ cup unrefined, cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil

sea salt to taste (I think 3/4 teaspoon is about right.)

1 pound dried pasta (I like a pasta which catches the tomatoes, such as orrecchiette or conchiglie. My mom always made it with spaghetti.)

Kosher salt to season the pasta water
