Pasta al Pomodoro e Basilico

A fantastic weeknight meal guaranteed to make the whole table happy!


  • 50g Perfect Pasta™ Red Rice with Chia

  • ⅓ cup tomato paste

  • ½ cup diced or puréed tomatoes

  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes

  • 8 ml olive oil

  • 1 large fresh basil sprig

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter

  • ¼ cup of grated parmesan or pecorino



  1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water for about 7 minutes or until al dente. Stir pasta often to prevent the noodles from sticking. Drain, cover with cold water and drain.

  2. In a frying pan, saute the garlic over medium heat with olive oil. Add red pepper flakes; cook for 1 minute more. Add tomato paste, basil sprig, and reduce heat. Stir in the diced or puréed tomatoes and ground black pepper to taste. Simmer on low heat for about 10 -15 minutes. Remove basil sprig and discard.

  3. Add pasta and toss well with the butter and grated cheese.

  4. Serve and enjoy!
