I’m always looking for fast recipes and this recipe was included in the 30 best fast recipes ever in the Food & Wine 30th Anniversary Issue.  It’s really fast and was definitely tasty.  I added prosciutto but I think it would be great with chunks of chicken.  Changes in green.

1 pound pasta

2 medium tomatoes, diced  (1 can diced tomatoes, drained)

4 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes

2 Tbs. tomato paste

4 large basil leaves

1 garlic clove

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

2.5 oz. prosciutto, chopped

 

1.  In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta until al dente.

2.  In a blender, puree the diced and sun-dried tomatoes with the tomato paste, basil, garlic and olive oil.  Pour the sauce into a large bowl and season with salt and pepper.

3.  Drain the pasta, add it to the sauce (add prosciutto) and toss well to coat.  Serve piping hot.
