Tomato Basil Pasta

I’m gonna be honest, this wasn’t great but I think it’s my fault because I used Roma tomatoes instead of grape because that’s what I have in my garden and the Roma aren’t as juicy as the grape so I need to try it again with grape tomatoes. I just dumped a jar of spaghetti sauce in there and my family gobbled it up.

12 oz penne pasta

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup diced onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 pint grape tomatoes, cut in half

6 – 8 basil leaves, sliced into thin strips

salt and pepper

1/4 cup Parmesan

1 Cook pasta according to package directions, removing from heat about 2 minutes before done. Reserve about 3/4 – 1 cup pasta water.

2 Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute then add tomatoes and salt and pepper. Cook until tomatoes just begin to blister, about 2 minutes. Add pasta water and chopped basil.

3 Add pasta to pan and bring to a boil for about 3 – 4 minutes. Stir in Parmesan.
