"Tony is my husband. He brought home a recipe he had gotten from someone at work, and it was adapted over time to this recipe -- so I named it "Tony's Summer Pasta". The tomatoes and cheese are marinated in oil, basil, and garlic, and then tossed with the hot linguine. The tomatoes are warmed and the cheese melts ever so slightly, creating a simple but delectable meal."

6 Roma tomatoes
1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese
