Fresh basil leaves and organic tomatoes dress long thin pasta that's as delish as restaurant fare.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic plain or fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt (kosher or sea salt)
  • 8 oz uncooked angel hair (capellini) pasta
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1
    In 10-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat. Add onion and red pepper flakes; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is tender. Add tomatoes, garlic and salt. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Meanwhile, cook pasta as directed on package. Drain; place in serving bowl. Pour tomato mixture over pasta; toss gently to coat. Add basil, cheese and remaining 1 tablespoon oil; toss.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Shredded Parm provides some texture and a bigger flavor burst than grated Parmesan cheese, though either is tasty.
  • tip 2
    If you like, top with grilled or sautéed shrimp or chicken. Smaller portions are perfect as appetizers or sides.
