Red Sunday - Italian Style Tomato Pasta
Today I'm continuing the Colorful Diet concept with a great Italian recipe. As we're still at Red Sunday I suggest to prepare a delicious Tomato Pasta for your lunch.
Here's a very successful variation of Tomato Pasta Sauce from cuisine.com.au:
150ml olive oil
4 onions, finely shredded
2 garlic cloves, finely shredded
1 tbsp sea salt
Freshly ground white pepper
400g tin whole tomatoes
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 bunch basil, leaves picked and roughly chopped
Warm the olive oil in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes, turn heat to low and continue to cook until very soft, about another 10 minutes. Add tomatoes, sugar and half the basil. Simmer until thickened and tomatoes have cooked out. Stir through remaining basil just before serving.
In order to make this yummy recipe a bit more healthy, use a whole wheat pasta.
