Penne with fresh tomatos and basil
Penne Pasta (of course you could use any pasta you like)
1 Can of diced tomatoes (i like to get them with garlic if I can)
1 Cup of grape tomatoes cut into quarters
1/2 onion diced
4 cloves of garlic diced
bunch of fresh basil cup up
1/2 tsp sea salt
dash of pepper
dash of red pepper flakes (depending how spicy you like it)
Over medium heat, heat up about a TBSP of olive oil in a pan and add the onions. After about a minute or so toss in the garlic. Wait about 30 seconds and add the canned tomato and fresh tomato. Add salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes and stir it all together. As soon as it starts to bubble cover and reduce the heat to low.
Boil some water for the pasta. Throw in a little sea salt and your pasta. Don't over cook the pasta! Huge pet peeve of mine.
Drain the pasta and combine with the sauce and fresh basil.
Plate it up and add a dollop of ricotta and a leaf of basil on top.
