Ingredients
  • 1 lb torchiette or other tubular or spiral pasta
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup oil-packed sun dried tomatoes, drained
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, tightly packed
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt & ground black pepper, to taste
  • Grated parmesan cheese or fresh ricotta, for serving
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, add the fresh tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, garlic, olive oil, and a liberal sprinkle of salt and pepper to a blender. Cover & blend for 1 minute, or until smooth. If sauce is too thick, add more olive oil to thin. Taste, and season with additional salt and pepper if necessary.

  3. When pasta is done cooking, drain, return to pot, and toss with pasta sauce. Serve immediately, with your choice of cheese on top.
