Quick italian dinner: pasta al pomodoro

I was reading my past posts and realized that I am always in a hectic situation.

I have to sit down and learn to breathe. Between the recording, filming and writing my social life has gone down the toilet. But who am I kidding? I love being busy. The point here is that I have to squeeze in time to do other stuff and relax a little.

That being said, I am going to share with you guys a recipe that is quick, easy and once you learn it, it never fails. So when you find yourself in a busy (or lazy) day, this is your solution.

I made this and Jimmy loved it. This is my no-fail, fool-proof recipe. Let’s take out some tomatoes and let the magic begin!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup tomato puree ( I was feeling kind of lazy and used the canned version and I also had half tomato which I grated and added it too)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • handful of chopped basil leaves
  • salt
  • Pasta of your choice (I used glutten-free)

 

Instructions: 

  • In a pan saute the garlic with the olive oil.
  • Chop the cherry tomatoes in half (easiest way to do it) and add them with the tomato puree in the pan. Let simmer for 15 minutes. Add the salt and the chopped basil.
  • In a big pot boil enough water for two portions of pasta, and add salt to the water. Once the water is at bowling point, add the pasta an let cook as instructed on the packaging. Once the pasta is cooked drain it and serve with the sauce.
  • Easy, breezy… pasta al pomodoro. Enjoy!
