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
Angel Hair with Tomato and Basil
Fresh basil leaves and organic tomatoes dress long thin pasta that's as delish as restaurant fare.
Preparation & Directions
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.
Did You Know?
Shredded Parm provides some texture and a bigger flavor burst than grated Parmesan cheese, though either is tasty.
If you like, top with grilled or sautéed shrimp or chicken. Smaller portions are perfect as appetizers or sides.
We recommend using organic ingredients where available. For more information see Why Organic?
