Today was one of those days where I was seriously craving some take away. This craving was bad. As in really really bad. A pizza, maybe some sushi or what about kebab? Perhaps you are familiar with those days, where the cravings are building up in your head, and at the point where you’ll have to make up your mind, there are too many thoughts, and you don’t know anymore, what you really want. That’s what happened to me today. But then I thought that all in all, I was really craving some italian food, so I decided to make a yummy, easy, very filling italian pasta for dinner. After all, I had almost every ingredient in the fridge.
• Fresh pasta
• 1 box of Cherry tomatoes
• Garlic (I use a lot)
• 1 dl extra virgin olive oil
• 1-2 tablespoons sugar
• 1 handfull chopped fresh basil
• Sea salt
• Black pepper
• Freshly grated parmesan cheese
Start by cooking the pasta. It takes about 2-3 minutes. Pour out the water, and set aside while prepping the “sauce”. Cut the tomatoes in half, and peel and press the garlic. Put it in a medium warm pan, with the olive oil, sugar, sea salt and black pepper. Let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Then add the pasta and basil. take the pan of the stove, but let it sit for about 5 minutes before serving. Serve with freshly grated parmesan, baguette and a glass of italian red wine.
This dish is so yummy, and literally takes no time to prep and cook. It’s not one dish I serve frequently, as my body isn’t very happy about me eating pasta, but every once in a while you just got to treat yourself with something as yummy as this.
