Pasta with Tomato Sauce
Pasta with tomato sauce is simple to make
Any pasta is suitable for this meal.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic (about 3 cloves)
1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup roughly chopped parsley
4 cups tomato sauce
500g pasta cooked “al dente”
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Bring a pot of water to a boil for reheating the pasta. Heat a large skillet or
heavy-bottomed pot large enough to hold all the ingredients over high heat.
Add the oil, garlic, pepper flakes, and parsley; allow these ingredients to
sizzle for 30 seconds. Add the tomato sauce; bring to a simmer.
2. Using a colander or China cap (a funnel-shaped strainer), dip the cooked
pasta into the boiling water for 1 minute to reheat. Transfer the reheated
pasta into the sauce, letting the water that adheres to the pasta drip into the
sauce and thin it a little. Toss to coat; adjust consistency with additional
pasta water, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve sprinkled with
additional chopped parsley.
Serves 8. Arrange 8 medium bowls and serve evenly with pasta spoon. A comfortable meal when there is more than just a few people.
