Tomato Bruschetta Pasta

All right, first off: I understand that technically, bruschetta refers to the bread, not the topping, but the topping doesn't have a convenient name.

This is a delicious, seasonal, and incredibly quick dinner recipe that I threw together tonight for dinner.

Tomato Bruschetta Pasta
Serves 2.
1 cup pasta (measured raw), cooked as directed on package
1 tomato
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp fresh basil leaves
drizzle olive oil (about 1 tsp)
salt to taste
1. Boil water and begin cooking pasta.
2. Meanwhile, combine tomato, garlic, basil, olive oil, and salt in food processor or blender. Puree to a consistency that pleases you.  Let sit while the pasta finishes cooking.
3. Divide pasta into 2 bowls. Split sauce over pasta. Garnish with Parmesan.
