Dd's Angel Hair Pomodoro

My plan now is to keep watching what I eat (low carbs) and maybe have one cheat day a week where I can have a saimin or a spam musubi or a piece of cake or . . . an Angel Hair Pomodoro!

angel hair pomodoro


3 large vine ripened tomatoes*

cloves garlic, peeled*

¼ fresh basil leaves, julienne

Salt, freshly cracked black pepper, as desired

2 TB olive oil

6 oz angel hair pasta 

Garnish: grated Parmesan cheese


*In a medium saucepot over medium high heat, bring water to a boil (enough water to cover tomatoes completely). With a sharp knife  mark a small “X” on bottom side of tomato. Turn off heat; place tomatoes and garlic in water. Allow to sit 1-2 minutes. Skin will begin to separate from “X”.  

Peel tomatoes; cut in half. Squeeze to remove seeds.  Chop tomatoes and mince garlic. Transfer into a large mixing bowl. Toss with basil, salt, pepper and olive oil. Reserve. 

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water according to package directions.  Drain.  Immediately toss with tomato mixture. Garnish as desired. Serves 3.

Great incentive. Suffer a little to be able to indulge once in awhile. I give you a lot of credit. Not sure if I could do that.
