Give the tomatoes enough time to marinate with garlic and olive oil, so the flavors develop in this simple heirloom tomato bruschetta pasta salad with basil.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds assorted heirloom tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and smashed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 8 ounces fusilli
  • 1/4 cup torn fresh basil

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and red pepper flakes. Let the mixture sit for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Cook the fusilli according to package instructions. Drain the pasta in a colander and rinse with cold water.
  3. Transfer the pasta to a large bowl. Use a slotted spoon to add the tomatoes to the pasta. Stir in enough of the juices from the tomato bowl to coat the pasta, about 2-3 tablespoons. Fold in the basil and remaining salt and pepper before serving.
