Pasta with Tomatoes and Basil Recipe

  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta or regular or whole grain spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons good olive oil plus 1 tablespoon for tossing with pasta
  • 2/3 cup diced onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (Muir Glen fire roasted) (14 ounce can)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher or sea salt (or pinch of table salt)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cut basil
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Cook the pasta as package directs, drain and toss with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil.

While pasta cooks, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large sauté pan. I use a 12 inch lidded All-Clad sauté pan.

Add the onions to the oil and cook for about 5 minutes, then add garlic, tomatoes and salt to taste - consider the amount listed above a suggestion.

Pour the tomato mixture over the drained pasta and toss in the basil and parmesan cheese.
