Fresh Pasta with Pesto

Fresh pasta and pesto very good with a spicy garlic kick! Vampires watch out.

3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups fresh basil leaves
2 rip plum tomatoes, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
Fresh Pasta

In a food processor, combine the garlic, pine nuts, and salt and process to a paste. Add the basil, tomatoes and pepper to taste and process until well blended. With the machine running, slowly stream in the oil. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
In a large pot of boiling water cook pasta until al dente. Transfer pasta to a large serving dish. Add the pesto toss gently to combine, serve immediately.
