1/2 pound of uncooked rigatoni
6 medium fresh tomatoes
1 12 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 small onion
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup fresh basil
7 to 8 ounces mozz. cheese. Either shredded or sliced
salt and pepper
olive oil 1 or 2 TBSP
Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Saute onion an garlic over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring so garlic doesn't burn. Add crushed tomatoes and fresh tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes until mixture thickens slightly. Add half of the basil and stir for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and add to the pasta. Pour in tomato sauce and store to combine. Pour into a baking dish or skillet
I pour half, put some mozz(lightly) then pour the remaining into baking dish.
Top with cheese and place under broiler for 5 to 8 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Sprinkle with remaining fresh basil and serve.
I made earlier in day and sat out without broiling it until about 25 minutes before meal. Put in 375 oven and it worked fine. Also threw some fresh mushrooms on top before baking.
