Pleasurable Pasta

When it comes to making an evening meal, there is nothing more satisfying than to have a go to meal, that takes no time to make and all you to make it are ingredients you have probably already got in your cupboard.I love pasta, but I can often be forced away from the simplistic meals because I want to make something more decadent, so when I concocted this dish that is decadent and quick, I thought it would only be fair to share it with you guys.

I am using Mr Organic’s tinned cherry tomatoes, because they are so easy to cook with and they are ready in the cupboard for whenever I need them. There are only a few ingredients to this dish and depending on what pasta you’re using it can take less than 15 minutes to make.

This serves 2 for a filling dinner, perfect for lunch the next day also.

Ingredients –

400g tin x Mr Organic’s cherry tomatoes

4 tablespoons x garlic puree

1 x shallot, diced

1 teaspoons x coconut oil

Salt + pepper for seasoning

Method – 

  1. Fill a pan with boiling water and cook your pasta for the time specified on the packet. 
  2. When the pasta has 8 minutes left to cook add the coconut oil and shallots to another pan and put on a medium to high heat, ensuring that the shallots do not stick to the bottom of the pan, allow to cook for 3 minutes or so until the shallots are beginning to soften.
  3. Add the tomatoes and garlic puree and turn the heat down to a medium heat stirring gently to ensure the tomatoes remain whole. 
  4. After all is piping hot, season to taste and allow to cook for a further minute or so, meanwhile drain your pasta, retaining a tablespoon of the water.
  5. Add the pasta and the tablespoon of water to the tomatoes and stir well, ensuring all of the pasta is coating in the tomato sauce.
  6. Serve immediately for best results, best enjoyed in loungewear or PJ’s!
