Monica McCarty's Easy Angel Hair Pasta

I dug up this recipe from a cookbook I did when my husband was with the Minnesota Twins called
"Home Plate Hits" many years ago:

Easy Angel Hair Pasta: (in book called "Can't Miss Angel Hair Pasta")

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil (plus 1-2 T. more to taste)
3 cloves garlic, mashed
6 ounces angel hair pasta
8 Roma Tomatoes, seeded and chopped
3 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
2 Tablespoons grated parmesan (good quality like reggiano)

1.  Heat 2 T. olive oil in medium saucepan.  Add garlic.  Turn heat to low and cook for a few minutes
until golden brown.

2.  Meanwhile, cook pasta in large pot of boiling water.  About one minute before pasta is done, add
tomatoes and basic to garlic and olive oil.  Stir well.

3.  Drain pasta and toss with tomato mixture.  Add olive oil to taste.  Serve sprinkled with parmesan.

Serves 2 as main dish or 4 as a side.

Great with sourdough bread.  You can substitute shallots for garlic.  Great also with shrimp.
