Penna Pasta With Tomato-Basil Butter

Penne Pasta With Tomato-Basil Butter
Last evening for dinner our daughter Mary made a Pasta dish with a sauce that seemed to easy to be true. Mary continues to tell me that pasta dishes in Italy are made in 15 minutes or less. As her stay with us concludes, I think she has me convinced. I will give you the ingredients and you can adjust them according to your preferences as an Italian cook would do.
1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in halves
about 4 to 6 basil leaves
1 or 2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup butter
Penne Pasta
Place in food processor and process until butter is small "curd" shapes.
Cook penne pasta in salted boiling water according to directions, drain, toss with tomato-basil butter and serve!
