Penne Pasta with Basil and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Pick-me-up food

2 large ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped
4 oven-dried or sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, chopped
salt and pepper
1 pound penne  pasta
1 cup fresh basil leaves, loosely packed
Parmesan cheese

Combine fresh and oven-dried tomatoes, oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Marinate at room temperature for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Boil pasta in salted water until al dente, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain well, and while still hot, toss with tomato mixture.

Coarsely chop basil and combine with pasta. Serve immediately, or at room temperature.
