Pasta al Pomodoro Recipe
Making this pasta dish is easy. You only need basic ingredients and common kitchen tools. Below is a quick and easy recipe you may want to try.
(fresh or in can)
extra virgin olive oil
Boil a pot of water and a little dash of salt.
Once the water is boiling, you can start to cook the pasta. You may follow the instructions indicated in the package.
Once done, drain the pasta and set aside.
Boil water in another pot. When the water is boiling, put the tomatoes for a few minutes and then drain.
Once the tomatoes are cool enough to touch, peel and finely chop them. You may also use a blender, if you prefer a smoother texture.
In a saucepan, heat garlic in olive oil. Cook until it turns golden brown. This may take about three minutes.
Slowly add the tomatoes in the pan and stir until well combined. Add salt, to taste.
Cook the tomato sauce on medium high heat for roughly around 10 minutes, or until the sauce starts to thicken.
You can start adding sugar by half a teaspoon. Add more according to your preference. Note that most pasta dishes are not sweet.
Stir in the chopped basil in the pasta sauce. Make sure that it is well combined.
Toss the pasta with the tomato sauce mixture. You can add a tablespoon of butter to make it creamier.
Once the butter is completely melted, turn off the heat. Top with grated cheese and serve immediately.
