Capellini con Pomodori Balsamico
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:
 
Sauté 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 min. 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!
