Prep Time: minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Yields: 4 servings
What You'll Need:
3 garlic cloves 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 4 cups cherry tomatoes ½ teaspoon salt 1/3 cup tomato sauce (passata)
4 oz Gorgonzola cheese ¼ cup fresh parsley
1 pack penne pasta
Notes: I prefer whole wheat for flavor and nutritional value.
However, any pasta shape will do though, angel hair is lovely with this too.
Add garlic cloves and olive oil on stove top over high heat. Once oil gets hot, reduce to medium. Add tomatoes after garlic cooks down, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. And ½ teaspoon of salt. Cook for 15 minutes stirring as you go. Take out garlic and add 1/3 cup tomatoes sauce. Simmer for additional 5 minutes. Turn off heat and sprinkle with gorgonzola cheese and fresh parsley.
Add Pasta to boiling water and cook until al-dente, on medium high heat. Drain, reserving ½ cup of pasta water and set aside.
Combine Pasta and sauce together in pot, adding reserved starch water as necessary to make sauce more creamy.
