It was a late night neither my daughter or I had eaten. Hmmmmm what to fix?
We had some left over whole wheat pasta from earlier in the week. She took half and I took half and here is what we came up with. It was fun creating with my daughter... I think I will try hers next time!
Moms Basic Tomato Basil Pasta by ann west
cherry or grape tomatoes
red pepper flakes
salt & pepper and a squeeze of lemon
Saute your garlic in some olive oil. Add your tomatoes and let them simmer. (I like mine to even get brown. Add you spices. Add your pasta and toss to heat through. This is a key element and will infuse your pasta with your yummy sauce. Serve with a sprinkle of cheese. Enjoy!
