Rigatoni with Dried Tomatoes

Here's a much simpler recipe from Ciao Italia, by Mary Ann Esposito. It's just another of my mom's dog-eared pages...

--1 cup Sun-Dried Tomatoes, soaked in Olive Oil
--1 clove Garlic, minced
--1 pound Rigatoni, cooked al dente
--3 tbsp Fresh Basil, minced
--1/3 cup grated Parmesan or Romano Cheese
--1/3 cup grated Asiago Cheese
--Fresh-ground Black Pepper

Drain the tomatoes, reserving 2 tablespoons of the oil. Chop the tomatoes very fine by hand. In a saucepan, saute the tomatoes, oil and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes. Toss with rigatoni. Add the basil and cheese and toss some more. Grind in some pepper to taste.
