30-Minute Thursday

In preparation for an upcoming half-marathon, my husband and I are following a training plan that requires us to run four days a week. We ran a little later than usual yesterday and were both starving by the time we got home. Fortunately, I had anticipated this and already had an easy Pasta Pomodoro dish planned for dinner. Total time, including prep is only about 30 minutes. We have had this twice now and everyone loves it. Here's the recipe:

1 pkg. angel hair pasta

1/4 c. olive oil

1/4 c. white onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

4 large roma tomatoes, chopped (about 2 c.)

2 TBSP red wine vinegar (or balsamic vinegar)

1 can, chicken broth

crushed red pepper

black pepper

2 tbsp fresh basil

1/4 - 1/2 c. parmesan cheese

1. Cook angel hair pasta until al dente (2-4 min.)

2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil.

3. Saute onions and garlic until lightly browned.

4. Add tomatoes, vinegar, and chicken broth; simmer for about 10 min.

5. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes and black pepper, both to taste.

6. Add fresh basil and simmer another 5 min.

7. To serve, place pasta in bowl, add sauce over top, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

No leftovers at our house!
