Pasta Al’Pomodoro - Physio Direct NZ

Pasta Al’Pomodoro


8 large Roma tomatoes, diced

1 large Spanish onion

1 clove of garlic, crushed

A teaspoon of salt to taste

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

Fresh basil for garnish.

Fresh pasta sauce straight from Italy.


Place the oil, garlic and onion on medium heat and sauté until onion is clear.

Add tomatoes, already diced and salted, then allow to cook on medium until a sauce begins to form. Turn heat down, cover and simmer for 20 mins, stirring regularly. Occasionally add a few tablespoons of water if the sauce becomes too thick.

For taste you can add chilli, bacon or mushrooms but this makes a great starting base and is surprisingly tasty as it is.

Cook your favourite pasta in a separate pot and stir into sauce when ready. Garnish with fresh basil and parmesan cheese.

Serves two | Preparation time: 1 hour
