Pasta with Tomatoes Herbs and Grated Parmesan Cheese


A good Pasta with fresh herbs, I love to go out to my herb garden and snip off fresh herbs for this recipe, and the Parmesan cheese and garlic make this a great Italian side dish. For me this is a comfort food, because I remember eating this growing up during some of the best family dinners.

serves 6
what you Need:

1 lb package dry pasta of your choice
1 29 ounce can plum tomatoes or diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp dry marjoram or 1 tsp fresh
1/8 tsp dry thyme or 1 tsp fresh
1/8 tsp dry basil or 1 tsp fresh
1/8 tsp dry oregano or 1 tsp fresh
Drizzle of olive oil
Pinch of Salt and a shake of Pepper
Grated Parmesan Cheese

Directions:

Cook Pasta according to package directions, being careful not to over cook. Make sure you salt 
the water. Boiling the salt into the pasta makes it tastier.

Drain pasta and immediately add crushed tomatoes, garlic powder, sugar, onion powder, herbs and 
olive oil. mix well
Serve with grated Parmesan and cheese or garlic bread.

Tips and Tricks for this Recipe:

Put a lid on your pot while you are waiting for it to boil, it will come to a boil much faster
While noodles are cooking sprinkle cheese on whole wheat toast and broil in oven or in toaster oven.

Grated Parmesan freezes well. I buy 5 ounce containers when they are on sale and keep the extra’s in the 
freezer for up to 4 months.

Throw leftover hot dog and hamburger buns in the freezer and pull them out to make quick garlic or cheese 
toast.
