In Studio: Capellini Pomodoro
½ cup olive oil
1 cup diced onions
5 cloves chopped garlic
10 plum tomatoes
¼ cup fresh pesto
2 cups vegetable broth
Salt and pepper to taste
4 leaves of fresh basil sliced thinly
Sauté onions and garlic in the olive oil until translucent. Add tomatoes, pesto and broth and simmer for 20 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. This makes a fantastic vegetarian based sauce to toss with any pasta dish. Capellini is in the angel hair category.
Toss this hot sauce with the pasta until it is well coated and serve it in a pasta bowl. Garnish with the fresh basil and shaved Parmesan. Grilled, steak, pork tenderloin, chicken or shrimp would make an excellent add-on!
