Fresh Tomato Basil & Pasta

I have not had time to run to the grocery store and my dinners have turned into peanut butter and jam on toast. Tonight I found myself in the same predicament until my roommate said, "Please eat the heirloom tomatoes from my garden!" She has fresh basil growing out there too. I knew I had some whole wheat pasta in the fridge. Sweet! A super simple, fresh healthy meal. Please note, that fresh basil and in season tomatoes are what makes this meal so delicious, so make sure to use the real stuff!
