READY IN: 30mins




  • Heat the oil in a large skillet.
  • Add the pepper, fennel and garlic and saute a couple of minutes just until the garlic is golden (not brown!).
  • Add the tomatoes with their juice, the herbs and salt.
  • Stir to combine, bring to a good simmer, turn the heat to low and let cook, uncovered, for about 20 minutes.
  • Mix with cooked pasta and serve.
  • Note 1- add as little or much garlic as you like- we like a lot.
  • The same with the other ingredients- add the herbs you want in the amounts you want.
  • You can saute 1/2 of an onion with the garlic if you like it.
  • Note 2- You can substitute fresh herbs, but if you do double the measurement, and add them during the last few minutes of cooking.
  • Note 3- add some raw, peeled shrimp to the sauce for the last five minutes for shrimp pasta.
