Pasta with tomatoes and basil

A Healthy and Refreshing Pasta with Tomato and Basil

Pasta with a tomato basil sauce is one of the healthiest and most refreshing meals one can prepare. What’s more, it’s quick and easy to prepare. This pasta recipe yields about four servings and you will need the following ingredients:

12 ounces pasta, cooked according to package directions
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped or about ½ teaspoon garlic powder, if fresh garlic is unavailable
5 tomatoes, coarsely chopped
About 2 tablespoons basil, finely chopped, or 2 teaspoons dried basil
Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Cook the pasta according to its package directions. Heat a large skillet and once hot, add the olive oil. One the oil is hot enough, sauté the garlic for a few minutes, being careful not to brown it. Then, add the tomatoes and basil over medium heat and cook until the mixture has warmed through.

Place your cooked pasta in a large bowl or on individual plates. Top each serving with the tomato sauce and garnish with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
