Fresh & Easy

Hello, fellow foodies!

The first time I made this pasta, I had company for dinner.  Only a crazy gal like me dares to experiment in the kitchen when  guests are expected for dinner.  I accompanied this dish with grilled chicken breasts.  The ambiance was very casual, just how I like it.  Dinner was so good that I forgot what I made for dessert.  The ingredients for this recipe are few and fresh.  Anyone can make it. You can accompany this pasta with any protein or just serve as a delicious main dish.

Fresh Tomato Pasta

Ingredients                                                      Yield: 8 Servings

5 large red tomatoes, pureed

1 medium onion, diced

4 garlic cloves, thinly diced

1/4 cup olive oil

5 fresh basil leaves, cut

1/2 cup white wine

Salt & Pepper to taste

16 ounces cooked pasta noodles ( I used fettucini)

Fresh parmesan

Fresh basil for garnish

In large pan, over medium heat, pour oil, cook onion and garlic until translucent. Add pureed tomatoes, basil, wine, salt and pepper.  Cook sauce in low heat for thirty minutes, stirring occasionally.  Meanwhile, boil pasta.
Add pasta noodles to sauce pan and gently incorporate.
Add freshly grated parmesan cheese and garnish with basil.

Enjoy with a good glass of wine  and the best group of friends.
