crushed red pepper to tasteI used 1/4 tsp. and it was spicy!
salt and pepper to taste
1/4cupgrated romano cheese
2servings cooked angel hair pasta
Heat olive oil in a medium sauté pan. Add tomato and onion, and cook until softening, about 3 minutes.
Add chopped basil, chopped garlic, and black pepper. Cook until blended into other veggies, about 5 minutes.
Turn the heat to low, and drizzle 1 additional Tbsp. of olive oil directly into the pan. Also add the crushed red pepper, and salt to taste. Cover the pan, and allow to simmer 15 minutes. (I like to cook my pasta during this time!)
Once the veggie combination is very smooth and blended, add the cooked pasta directly to the veggie pan. Sprinkle the romano cheese onto the pasta, and use tongs to toss everything together.
Serve hot, and garnish with more cheese and pepper if you like!
