Pasta Primavera With Cherry Tomato Sauce

L love this no nonsense sauce, whether it's spooned over plain pasta or simple grilled chicken. I always make mine with full flavoured vine ripened tomatoes for the best result.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the tomatoes, sugar, onion, garlic, rosemary and stock into a large pan and bring to the boil. Simmer over a low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes have broken down and the sauce has thickened.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the rigatoni in a large pan of slightly salted boiling water according to the packet instructions. Add the broccoli and green beans 3 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
  3. Drain the rigatoni and vegetables and toss with the cherry tomato sauce. Season to taste and serve immediately.

I enjoyed this dish! I sauteed instead of boiling. I used sweet yellow tomatoes and threw in a couple cups of cooked sausage. Tossed it with some parmesan and DH and I really scarfed it up! Thanks!

I really did not like this dish. It had little or no flavor. I used my own home-grown cherry tomatoes which have a lot of flavor so I don't know what the problem was. I will not make again.
