When I feel like a good home meal but have no time to cook or simply not exactly in the mood for a kitchen day, Pasta Pomodoro is the first thing that comes to my mind. It is a basic, quick and easy dish that requires only a couple of ingredients yet the outcome is a fusion of simple earthy flavors and aromas that makes it a great dish for the whole family.

The key to a flavorful Pasta Pomodoro is fresh, local and preferably organic ingredients.

Ingredients (4 portions):

· 500g whole wheat pasta

· 8 to 10 ripe tomatoes skinned* and diced

· 3 to 4 Tbsps. extra virgin olive oil

· Fresh basil leaves

· Crushed peppercorn, salt

Pour olive oil in a saucepan over low heat, add tomatoes and cook for 30 minutes or until tomatoes are soft. Add black pepper.

Meanwhile, bring lightly salted water to a boil in a large pot. Add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally for 8 to 10 minutes until pasta is al dente. Drain pasta.

Serve pasta with sauce on top or mixed. Garnish with basil. #SimplyYummy #LessIsMore!

*To skin the tomatoes, make a cross at the top with a knife then put them into boiling water for a couple of minutes. The skin will come off easily.
