Cappellini Pomodoro

Capellini Pomodoro,

Fresh, Delicious, Simple Recipe

There simply could not be a more perfect recipe to cook when fresh tomatoes are in season.  And simple is the keyword here!!!    I think that is what gives this dish it’s wonderful flavor.

Ingredients list:

One 13.5 ounce package of angel hair pasta cooked according to package directions

Exactly one cup of cut in half fresh cherry tomatoes

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Four cloves of fresh garlic, finely chopped

1/4 cup white wine

1/4 cup of finely chopped fresh basil

1/2 cup of finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese

Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

In a medium-size pot heat the olive oil over high heat.  When the oil is hot add the tomatoes and let them simmer for about three minutes, continually stirring.  Add  the garlic and continue to simmer for about another minute.  Pour in the wine and continue to simmer.  You want the tomatoes to cook down but you also want them to still have some texture.  This is going to take about three more minutes.  When the tomatoes Are at the right consistency stir in the cooked pasta.  Add in the basil and Parmesan cheese.   Salt and pepper to taste.  Mix all of the ingredients up really good!!!  You want all those tomatoes and really good juices to get in there and coat that pasta!

    Melissia, I am so excited about your new blog and Facebook page. It is about time, um I mean thyme, you showed your beauty and extraordinary talents to the world! You are a true artist on SO MANY levels. Much love and happiness as you undertake this wonderful experience! As for me, I love to cook and paint too. When we moved to Hattiesburg last year, I finally got my cooking kitchen, complete with a six burner gas stove and tons of extras! Thanks for the Capellini Pomodoro recipe. My grape tomatoes are coming in and I am excited to show them off tonight!

      Thank You, Sharon!!! I am very excited about it!!! Something I have wanted to do for a long time but have just not taken the plunge! I am creating the blog myself and not having any training in “blog talk, code,etc…” sometimes overwhelms me. But… I am determined to do it myself so that I can learn! Thanks again and let me know how you like the recipe!!!
