Pasta Arribbiata! W/ Fresh Torn Basil

  • 1/8 cup toasted sesame oil
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
  • 1 28 ounce can whole peeled tomatoes (see modifications below)
  • Whole wheat pasta of your choice
  • Fresh Torn Basil
  • Fresh basil or parsley for garnish
  • Salt to taste (optional)

1) Cook pasta according to package directions.  While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium-low heat.  Careful and make sure it is med-low to not burn the garlic.  Add the garlic and red pepper. Saute, stirring until garlic turns golden.

2) Add the whole tomatoes to the garlic, hot pepper and oil mixture.  Cut them into quarters in the pan, or as small as you’d like.

3) Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20-25 minutes. Serve over the pasta of your choice.

Makes enough sauce for approximately 4-5 servings. Can be easily doubled or tripled.

  2. I love pasta and fresh basil…looks yummy!!!

    • It is crazy how good this incredibly simplistic but unfolding flavors this recipe literally poors forth….or maybe it goes back to what my father used to say ‘simple pleasures are the refuge of the complex’…though I would never claim to be complex lol

  3. Haha! I may just be making this for dinner tonight!! Need to see if I still have some fresh basil. Thank you!
