No Cook Tomato Sauce

Ingredients:

2 lb. heirloom tomatoes (about 3 large or 4 medium), cored and cut into 1/2-inch dice (about 4 cups)
1/2 cup Olio Beato extra-virgin organic olive oil
1/3 cup roughly chopped fresh basil
1 tsp. chopped fresh garlic
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper; more to taste
1 Tbs. coarsely chopped fresh thyme (or 1 tsp dried thyme)
Pinch crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Directions:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a non-reactive bowl large enough to hold the tomatoes and the cooked pasta; mix well. Let the sauce sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 hours.
  2. Toss the sauce with just-cooked Cavatappi pasta. Adjust the seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Add 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

This is even better the next day.
