Blue Cheese Pasta

A summer pasta that we paired as a side dish with steak.  Here's the link to the original recipe - I made a few modifications to fit our tastes. Yummy!

12 oz Penne pasta
14 oz diced tomatoes
Blue Cheese
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp dried basil

Cook pasta according to its instructions, strain and set aside.
In a large frying pan add olive oil over medium heat.
Add in garlic and cook for approximately 2 minutes.
Add in diced tomatoes and pasta and cook on medium head for about 5 to 10 minutes.
Add in fresh basil and cook for another minute or two.Serve in a bowl and sprinkle blue cheese over top to taste (or in my husbands' case - feta - see bottom pic).

So this one is obviously not blue cheese. Hubs isn't a fan, so I swapped for feta.
