Need a filling and healthy dinner on the double? Got pasta but no sauce? Fear not! My father in law comes to the rescue. This is served as a main course in my home, but it would also make a nice side dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, slice each tomato in half and squeeze gently to remove some of the seeds and juice (does not need to be perfect - but without this step, the sauce will be too watery!).
  3. Heat oil in a small pot. Add garlic and cook until lightly browned. Remove garlic from oil with a slotted spoon and discard.
  4. Transfer garlic-infused oil to a large skillet on medium-low heat. Add onion and tomatoes, and stir frequently.
  5. By the time the pasta is cooked, the tomatoes and onions should also be ready. Drain pasta and add to skillet with sauce. Toss to coat.
  6. Serve topped with grated parmesan cheese.
