grapefruitmoon's Yummy Pasta

Make pasta. I'm sure you know how. Linguini works best for this, but I've had good results with bowties as well. I wouldn't recommend maccaroni or anything teeny weeny like that.

- While pasta is cooking, heat ~ 1/3 cup oliveoil in a pan
- add a pantsload of chopped garlic (I've used anywhere from three cloves to a whole head, depending on what I have available - the more, the better in my opinion)
- If you're adding less than five cloves chopped garlic, I'd recommend 1 tsp. garlic powder to give the oil a little flavor.
- 1/2 tsp. roasted red pepper. (You could use more if you like things really spicy, but this certainly gives it a kick.)
- I sometimes add a little Italian seasoning, sometimes not. I recommend herb experimentation.

When the oil is all nice and hot and reeks of garlic, toss in a chopped tomato or two. Cook until tomato is to your done-ness preference. Add feta cheese (in very small hunks). Melt slightly.

Toss cheesylicious sauce over pasta.
