The BEST Italian Penne al Pomodoro Recipe 

This Tomato Pasta Recipe is so simple and easy to make any night of the week.

Step 1

Sauté Sliced Garlic, Chiles de Arbol, and Tomato Paste

Garlic, tomato paste, and dried chiles layer tons of flavor into this Penne al Pomodoro Recipe.

Step 2

Add WHOLE Tomatoes then mash them up and simmer.

Let them simmer for 10 minutes to soften before trying to mash them with a potato masher.

Step 3

Combine the Pomodoro Sauce with Cooked Pasta

I love penne because it's traditional, but you can use any short shape. You can even combine shapes!

Step 4

Top the Penne al Pomodoro with Fresh Basil

The basil should be added to the TOP of the Pomodoro since heat completely diminishes the flavor.
