This recipe for Spaghetti with Tomatoes and Basil is loosely based on a recipe in The Silver Palate Cookbook. It's a great method using fresh, ripe, summer tomatoes.
Summer cooking implies a sense of immediacy, a capacity to capture the essence of the fleeting moment. Elizabeth David

Drain pasta and immediately toss with the tomato sauce. Serve immediately.
