Just because it's summer doesn't mean you have to give up your favorite pasta dishes.  Instead of slaving away at the stove for hours making a traditional tomato sauce, try this no-cook version made with delicious summer tomatoes.  The key to this sauce is finding the best tomatoes you can and giving them plenty of time to marinate. Also don't be afraid to add some cheese when tossing everything together.  A tangy goat cheese, creamy fresh mozzarella, or salty Parmesan are all delicious additions as are some freshly grilled zucchini, aspargus, or shimp.
