With so much to do last week and this week I really haven’t had much time to cook anything special for my husband and I. Feeling exhausted, a big bowl of pasta sounded good to me. Simple and quick to prepare plus packed with flavor and nutrients.
Here’s all that’s needed:
Whole Wheat Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce
10 Roma Tomatoes
1-2 cloves of garlic
kosher salt and fresh pepper to taste
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Whole Wheat Pasta
Mince garlic and set aside
Dice Tomatoes. Place olive oil in a large saute pan with garlic and heat briefly. Add tomatoes and simmer for about 15 minutes or until all the juices are released and the tomatoes create a sauce.
Add fresh basil, chopped chiffonade style. If desired add frozen peas, fresh veggies or prior to adding tomatoes add diced onions and saute until opaque then adding tomatoes. Season with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper.
Cook pasta, then add fresh tomatoes with basil. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan.
