LINGUINE WITH TOMATOES & BASIL

Fellow Rotarian, Marilyn Hogan, served this delicious and unusual pasta for dinner at her ranch in New Castle, Colorado along with marinated grilled beef fillet and assorted salads.
The meal marked the end of a great day for some of our serious Rotarian bikers who had cycled 100 miles from Frisco to New Castle.

This dish is an easy dish as the tomato mixture can be prepared well in advance of serving.
