Ingredients
  • 3 pounds very ripe tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil plus 1 tablespoon pure olive oil
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  • 1 pound linguine
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
Directions

Coarsely chop the tomatoes, making sure to reserve the juice. Place tomatoes and juice in large bowl. Add the vinegar, 3 tablespoons of the extra-virgin olive oil, and the basil. Add the tablespoon of olive oil to a saute pan over medium high heat. Saute the garlic for 3 minutes, stirring. (Do not allow it to brown). Add to tomato mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let mixture sit at room temperature for at least 4 hours. When ready to serve, cook linguine in a large pot of boiling, salted water. When pasta is al dente, drain in a large colander, then transfer to a large bowl. Toss linguine with a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil and then with the Parmigiano-Reggiano. Divide linguine among 4 to 6 bowls. Top each bowl with about a cup of tomato chunks, retrieved from the tomato mixture with a slotted spoon. Ladle the remaining liquid around
