Angel Hair With Balsamic Tomatoes

READY IN: 30mins




  • Angel Hair With Balsamic Tomatoes.
  • (Capellini con Pomodori Balsamico).
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic.
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil.
  • 5 to 6 Roma tomatoes, chopped, (28 oz. canned plum tomatoes).
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil.
  • 1/2 lb angel hair pasta (uncooked).
  • Directions:
  • Saut? the garlic in olive oil until lightly browned. Do this in a skillet large enough to hold the tomatoes later.
  • Leave garlic in skillet.
  • Place tomatoes, salt, pepper, basil and balsamic vinegar in a non-reactive bowl and set aside for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Boil water for pasta.
  • Just before you put the pasta in the water, drain the tomatoes and reserve the juice that runs off.
  • Put the angel hair pasta in the water to cook for the recommended amount of time.
  • Heat your garlic skillet and toss drained tomatoes briefly just to heat. They should retain their shape. The pasta should finish cooking (usually no more than 5 minute for angel hair) at the same time the tomatoes are ready.
  • Toss the pasta and tomato mixture together and serve with freshly grated Parmigiano cheese.
  • That's it!
