THE PERFECT PASTA
This simple, classic dish will have you saying "Chef's Kiss!" 😘
Feel free to make it your own by personalizing this staple with your choice of meat or vegetables.
* 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 16 oz Organic Blended Heirloom Tomatoes
* ¼ cup chopped onion and/or mushrooms (optional)
* 1 small bell pepper (optional)
* ½ pound sausage, ground meat or meat substitute (optional)
* Chili flakes to taste
* Sea salt and pepper to taste
* ½ teaspoon of oregano or other favorite seasonings (optional)
* Parmesan to taste
Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in medium skillet or Dutch oven. Add onion, mushrooms, and sauté over medium heat. Add meat to mixture. When meat is cooked, add chili flakes, sea salt, pepper, and other spices. Stir in Balakian Farms Organic Blended Heirloom Tomatoes and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes, or until reduced to desired consistency.
In a separate pan, heat water with a dash of sea salt and bring to a boil. Pour in pasta of your choice (any kind goes well with this sauce). Cook 2 - 3 minutes and keep pasta firm. Remove, drain and set to the side.
Once sauce is reduced, slowly fold in pasta a little at a time and cook with sauce until pasta is al dente. Garnish with parsley and parmesan. Serve with crusty bread and enjoy!
