Tomato and Sage Spaghetti

Tomato and Sage Spaghetti

This is one of my favorite pasta dishes. It is simple and quick to prepare, but, for good results, use only locally-grown, sun-ripened tomatoes.

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. Finely chop the sage; mince the garlic and chili pepper.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over low heat. Add the garlic, sage and chili pepper then sauté for 2-3 min, with stirring. Add the Parsley and Garlic Base, the Tomato Base and cook about 7-8 min over medium heat. Reduce the heat, then add the Feta cheese and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. To save time, while the sauce is cooking, cook the pasta. Pour the drained pasta into the skillet and toss well.
  4. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan and serve in the warmed dishes.
