How to make Penne Pasta with Basil Garlic Marinara

  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat, and add minced fresh garlic. Lightly brown garlic. Add tomatoes with juice. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer. Stir in basil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
  2. Simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally, and adjusting seasoning to taste. (If the sauce starts to become too dry, add a little bit of water)
  3. Start pasta 15 minutes before sauce is done. Boil water in a deep bottomed pan, add salt, a few drops of oil. Add the pasta. Cook pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally until cooked through , still firm to the bite (Al dente) about 10 mins.
  4. Drain. Transfer pasta to a large bowl. To this add a few drops of oil, so that it does not stick. Toss gently.
  5. Serve by ladling sauce over pasta and sprinkling Parmesan cheese to taste. Garnish the hot pasta with freshly grated parmesan. Serve hot immediately.

My Tip:

Chef Tips: 1. Al dente refers to the desired texture of cooked pasta in Italian cooking. It literally means "to the tooth". When the pasta is cooked Al dente, there should be a slight resistance in the center when the pasta is chewed. 2. Do not overcook pasta, as it becomes mushy. 3. Do not rinse your pasta after it’s cooked. 4. Drizzle oil after the cooked pasta is drained, so that it does not stick together. 5. Serve the pasta hot immediately as the sauce tends to become thicker, as it turns cold, hence it hampers the beautiful appearance of the pasta. 6. Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
