Buon Appetito!

My husband works for the NYPD so he is never home for dinner! I get to make him a meal twice a week! It stinks but this gives me a lot of time to  really practice making meals during the week to give to him lol! Tonight I made pasta sounds easy I know…BUT IT IS easy and yummy!
These are the ingredients you will need:
-I used two tomatoes from my garden
-Oil
-Pepper & salt ( to taste)
-Fresh basil from my garden
-4 Cloves of fresh garlic---I LOVE garlic!

1st the water…I think we all have a tendency to warm the water last…at least I do! This time I started the water and then prepped the rest. I turned the water on high when I knew I was ready to put the pasta in. It was great because I didn’t have to wait for the water to heat up!

Then I cut the basil and placed it in the pot
 Tip: roll the basil together then cut it horizontally…easier, faster and it comes out in small strips my cousin JP taught me this. He learned it from my his mom AKA: My Aunt Ginny!

Then I put oil, garlic, salt and pepper in the pot. I “eye” balled it- as my mom would say-  to see how much oil I wanted in the pot. Sauté these ingredients on low to medium heat. Stir every so often!

When garlic is browned- add your tomatoes:

Stir and place on medium to high heat!
While this is cooking you can then put your pasta in:

After the pasta is done pour it into a strainer and take your “sauce”, for lack of a better word, off the burner. Place the pasta back in the pot and pour your sauce on top. Stir together then place in a plate!
