Ravioli with Fresh Tomato Sauce and Anti-pasta Salad

This is a cool refreshing and simple dinner that used the first of our fresh tomatoes. The tomatoes are uncooked. Start by roughly chopping 2 or 3 large tomatoes. Place them in a bowl with 2 cloves minced garlic, 1/2 extra virgin olive oil and 15-20 chopped fresh basil leaves. Toss and set aside. Cook the ravioli according to package directions. We used a spicy pork and beef variety that our grocery had but you could use any filled pasta, ravioli or tortellini. Drain the pasta, cool and toss with the tomato mixture. We added sliced kalamata olives just before serving. The anti-pasta salad is a mix of lettuce, cheeses, meats such as salami, peppers, and olives. Serve with a nice crusty bread and your choice of wine.
