Pasta Pomodoro...pronto!

Summer and hot weather are almost here, and most of us are looking for delicious dishes that are quick and easy to prepare.  This is one of our favorites, it comes together quickly, and is really tasty.  We had it for dinner tonight.  It is a simple dish, and very easy to make.

3 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 large cloves garlic, minced
8 basil leaves, chopped
28 oz. can San Marzano tomatoes, chopped
Salt to taste
1 tsp. sugar

Heat oil in pan over medium low heat.  Add garlic, and saute until soft, be careful not to burn the garlic..this will make the dish bitter.  Add chopped basil and cook about one minute.  Add chopped tomatoes and salt, mix well, turn heat to medium and simmer for ten minutes. Serve over thin spaghetti or angel hair pasta.  Add a salad and crispy bread...mangia!

  5. Thank you for including the pasta pomodoro recipe. This sounds delicious and it is important to have light dishes in the summer which can be made quickly as there is often less time in the evenings. This is the kind of dish which can be seasoned many different ways as well.
