What's to Eat? Wednesday: Carrabba's Italian Grill Tagliarini Picchi Pacchiu

I know the title of this dish sounds like a sneeze, but I swear it is good. Very simple, very clean tasting and worth a shot if you are wanting something low key for dinner. Sometimes I google restaurants to see if I can find a site that lists recipes and luckily for us Carrabba's is one that has been listed. Are they completely authentic? Probably not, but close enough. This and the house salad dressing (which is awesome and I will share later) are the only ones I've tried so far, but I will be trying more in the future and hope you do too.
Tagliarini Picchi Pacchiu
1 lb angel hair pasta
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
8 large clove garlic, sliced
16 Roma tomatoes, diced
16 to 24 basil leaves, roughly chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cook pasta according to package directions.
Meanwhile, simmer sliced garlic in olive oil over low heat for about 10 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients and stir over medium heat another 2 minutes. Toss with cooked pasta and serve as a side dish for chicken or shrimp.
Serves 4
