About Pasta Con Pomodoro E Basilico Recipe: Pasta with basic Tomato and Basil Sauce. This is the most basic and simplest cooked pasta sauce, hence it is the benchmark of a good and authentic Italian home cooked pasta .
Once you have a basic tomato sauce in hand, you could do zillions of variations. Add grilled veggies, or slivers of ham, or even some fish or prawns. Just try and not add chicken, everything else is fine. It should be cooked fast and at a high heat so that the tomatoes retain their summer sweetness, yet long enough to lose the watery quality that signals a bad sauce.
Pair this with some garlic bread for a delightful meal.
