Pasta Al Pomodoro (Tia's Take on Basta Pasta's Recipe)
260 mins (prep 20, cooking 240)
18 ingredients
8-10 servings
Basta Pasta was a great italian place in San Francisco . Sadly they went out of business a few years ago. Lucky for me when I was visiting the last time I asked the chef for the recipe, it came back on a greasy slip of paper with the basic ingredients and no amounts! I've only recently in the past few years enjoyed cooking so decided to give it a whirl! It tastes almost identical to theirs with much tweaking. The biggest thing with this is to use the BEST ingredients you can, i.e. tomatoes, wine, fresh basil. Its really easy to make so don't let the list of ingredients scare you away. For the pasta I have used fetticini, vermiccili, capelini etc...all taste great...cause of the sauce ;-) Cooking time is including the simmering of sauce.
