This very quick pasta dish uses fresh tomatoes and basil tossed with Italian salad dressing and Parmesan cheese. It's a great meal to prepare in the summer after a long day in the garden!

- 1 (16 ounce) package dry penne pasta
- 8 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
- 1/2 cup Italian dressing
- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil
- 1/4 cup diced red onion
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
