MY PASTA G0-TO: You are Just 5 Quick & Simple Steps Away!!!
Since becoming a mom my priorities as they relate to food have definitely shifted. These days, I’m more conscientious with my family and I eating healthier and cleaner. Not to say I don’t fall prey to an occasional drive-thru, every once in a while. Hey, “all things in moderation”, as my dad always says.
I’m sharing one of my family’s favorite quick and easy Pasta dishes! This will come in handy when you’ve had “one of those days”, and spending a long amount of time in the kitchen isn’t something you are looking forward to. This dish is simple, if you can boil water you are already half way there!
Prep Time 5 mins. | Cook Time 11 mins. |Total Time 16 mins.
1 Box (13.25oz) of Linguine pasta

¼ cup of Chopped Sweet Basil
1 cup Angel Sweet Tomatoes (tomatoes of choice)
Sea Salt & Pepper to taste
Now Lets Cook!
Boil 4 quarts of water
Add 1 Box of pasta and boil for 9 minutes
Drain, (leave about 1tbls of the starchy water to avoid sticking), place cooked pasta aside
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add tomatoes cook and stir for about 2 minutes
Toss in cooked pasta, sweet basil, salt and pepper. (for you cheese lovers go ahead and add parmesan cheese) Toss around until all is coated, then serve!
