Mascarpone Cheese and Bruschetta Pasta

Today I'm sharing with you another one of my friend Carla's recipes.  Can you tell this girl LOVES to cook!!
This is a simple recipe with only a few ingredients, so it's perfect for a last minute week night dinner....hummm...what's for dinner tonight?! 

1/2 box (about 2 cups of dry pasta) Gemelli pasta (you can use any short pasta you like)
3 Plum Tomatoes
Mascarpone cheese
2 cloves fresh Garlic
Parsley, Basil, Oregano, Salt and Pepper

Cook pasta to your liking. While the pasta is cooking dice up 3 plum tomatoes and season with fresh garlic, parsley, basil, dash of oregano, salt and pepper.  Once the pasta is finished boiling drain the pasta (reserve about 2 tablespoons of the cooking water).

In a mixing bowl combine the pasta, 2 tablespoons of pasta water, 3 tablespoons of mascarpone cheese and the bruschetta mixture.  Serve with garlic bread or texas toast.  You can easily double this recipe to feed more people or adding cooked chicken or shrimp would be delicious too.  ENJOY!
