 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      teaspoon      minced garlic
    1      teaspoon      olive oil
    5      to    6       Roma tomatoes, chopped, -- (28oz. can plum toma
    3      tablespoons   balsamic vinegar
                         salt    & pepper to taste
      1/4  c.            chopped fresh basil
      1/2  lb            angel hair pasta -- (uncooked)
 Saute the garlic in olive oil until lightly browned.  Do this in a
 large enough to hold the tomatoes later.  Leave garlic in skillet.
 Place tomatoes, salt & pepper, basil and balsamic vinegar in a
 non-reactive bowl and set aside for 10 minutes, stirring
 Boil water for pasta.
 Just before you put the pasta in the water, drain tomatoes and reserve
 juice that runs off.  (I usually set my colander on a dinner plate).
 Put the angel hair pasta in the water to cook for the recommended
 of time.
 Heat your garlic skillet and toss drained tomatoes briefly JUST to
 heat. They should retain their shape.
 The pasta should finish cooking (usually no more than 5 min. for angel
 hair) at the same time the tomatoes are ready.
 Toss the pasta and tomato mixture together and serve with freshly
 parmesan cheese
