Today Janelle from Comfy In The Kitchen is guest posting – she writes: “This recipe comes from my dear friend Mindy…we have been friends for literally our entire lives…our parents are friends and our mom’s were pregnant with us at the same time! What a blessing it is to have a life-long friend. She also comes from an Italian family who loves to cook! Mindy made this dish for me at my house a few years ago and left the recipe…Since then, I have made it over and over. It is so simple and so Bellisimo (as she would say)! The fresh herbs and garlic make this sauce!”
Crushed tomatoes, olive oil, chicken bouillon, parsley, basil, garlic, onion, black pepper, angel hair pasta There is no secret to chopping fresh herbs…but it is well worth the extra effort! Just bunch together and start chopping into small pieces. (You may substitute dry herbs for fresh- I do it all the time)
Then, take 4 cloves apart from the head of garlic and peel/chop into fine pieces.
Pour 1/4 cup of olive oil in a pot (enough to cover the bottom of the pot) and set on medium heat
Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until tender
Start boiling water for noodles…I add a touch of oil in my water to prevent the noodles from sticking (a little trick my grandma taught me)
Add noodles and boil- Angel Hair does not take long to cook..go by package instructions for al dente (appx 5 mins)
Back to the sauce! Add bouillon, parsley, basil and pepper into the onion mixture and stir well for 1 min.
Add crushed tomatoes and bring to a boil for 15 mins
Add 3/4 cup of water
Let simmer for 10 more mins
Voila! Bellisimo!!! My hubby thinks it is hilarious I eat my pasta with a spoon and fork…:)
