Super simple pasta dish with high quality Ingredients. A quick Pomodoro Pasta to zest up pasta nights! By Alissa DiSanto.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb bow tie pasta (I used whole wheat)
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1-14.5 oz can of San Marzano Crushed Tomatoes (don’t skimp; get good quality)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 bunch fresh basil chiffonade
  • Shaved parm cheese
  1. 1. Cook pasta according to package. Bow tie pasta usually takes between 8 to 10 minutes. Get your water boiling and salted while you prepare your ingredients for the sauce. Add pasta once water comes to a rolling boil. Make sure you add the salt once the water is boiling and prior to adding the pasta
  2. 2. In a large sauté pan with sides, heat the olive oil over medium heat
  3. 3. Add onions and cook until slightly translucent 4–5 minutes. Add garlic and constantly stir for 1 minute to ensure it does not burn and become bitter
  4. 4. Add tomato paste and red pepper flake and cook for another minute
  5. 5. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper, and sugar. Cook for 2–4 minutes. Lower heat to medium low
  6. 6. Using a kitchen spider, strain out the pasta and put it directly into the pan with the sauce, reserving the starchy pasta liquid to thin out the sauce
  7. 7. Toss the pasta in the sauce until all the noodles are coated. Using a ladle or a coffee cup, ladle one scoop of pasta water into the saucy pasta. Allow this to cook together for a minute
  8. 8. Finish sauce with butter to add a little richness. Garnish with basil and freshly shaved parm cheese
  9. 9. Serve immediately
