Pasta with al Fresco Sauce!

This is SO easy and SO delicious.

All you need is:
- pasta
- cherry tomatoes (or any fresh tomatoes)
- garlic
- shallot
- salt/pepper
- basil (or any fresh herb.. dried herbs work in a pinch.. pun intended)
- white wine
- fresh mozzarella

Chop up the tomatoes, garlic, shallot.  Season.  When pasta water comes to a boil and you've started the pasta, heat the seasoned chopped ingredients on a skillet with extra virgin olive oil.  when the garlic and onion are cooked (a few min) cover with white wine. Let simmer until the pasta is ready.  I like pasta best when it is cooked al dente.  season the sauce to taste.  Before covering pasta with sauce I like to coat with some more extra virgin olive oil.  When pasta and sauce is plated add the fresh mozzarella!
