Expert Tips

Roma—or plum—tomatoes are often preferred for sauces because they have fewer seeds and firmer flesh than regular slicing tomatoes.

This quick and easy pasta dish explodes with fresh flavor.

Slice 1 or 2 fully cooked Italian sausages, and cook with the garlic for a heartier meal.

Directions

  • 1 Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
  • 2 While pasta is cooking, heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Cook garlic in oil 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes. Cook 5 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until tomatoes are soft and sauce is slightly thickened. Stir in basil, salt and pepper. Cook 1 minute. Serve sauce over pasta.
