Simply Tomatoes Pasta

We often like to complicate matters, and lose the simplicity of being...simple.

So here, no sardines, no mushrooms, no ground meat. No Bok Choy, no bell peppers, no greens beans. I serve you...simply tomatoes. The "simply tomatoes" linguine - garlic and onions included, salt and pepper not forgotten.

Simply Tomatoes Linguine
Ingredients: 1 large tomato, diced; 4 cloves of garlic, finely minced; 1/2 a big onion, diced; sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste; cooked linguine (set side some boiling pasta liquid)

Directions: Heat olive oil in a pan. Add the onions, and fry briskly, then add the garlic and continue to fry till onions are slightly tender. Add in tomatoes, fry and simmer till tomato juice is released. Then lower the heat and continue to simmer till the tomatoes are soft and tender (almost disintegrated). Salt and pepper to taste. Add in linguine and toss well into the sauce, adding some pasta liquid if too dry.

The only other ingredient I can suggest to add, is some red pepper chili flakes or red chili powder to spice things up for Simply Tomatoes Spicy Linguine.


This dish is for , My Meatless Mondays and Hearth and Soul. It's pasta - so I can't forget Presto Pasta Nights hosted by Denise of Oh Taste n See.

What is the simplest pasta you have cooked?
