salt and pepper to taste
5 ounces mozzarella cheese, diced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 ounces fresh basil

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water as directed on package, until just tender. Drain, and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a small saucepan. Add green onions and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 or 3 minutes.

Stir in garlic, and cook for 2 minutes. Add pasta, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Cook over low heat to warm through.
