Angel Hair with Balsamic Tomatoes

Angel Hair with Balsamic Tomatoes

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 5 to 6 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 pound angel hair pasta (uncooked)

Instructions

Saute the garlic in olive oil until lightly browned. Do this in a skillet large enough to hold the tomatoes later. Leave garlic in skillet. Place tomatoes, salt & pepper, basil and balsamic vinegar in a non-reactive bowl and set aside for 10 minutes, stirring occassionally. Boil water for pasta. Just before you put the pasta in the water, drain tomatoes and reserve the juice. Put the angel hair pasta in the water to cook for the recommended amount of time. Heat your garlic skillet and toss drained tomatoes briefly JUST to heat. They should retain their shape. The pasta should finish cooking (usually no more than 5 min. for angel hair) at the same time the tomatoes are ready. Toss the pasta and tomato mixture together and serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese. We like to dip our bread in the reserved juice OR make salad dressing with it.
