Pasta with Baked Tomato Sauce

Threw together some random basic yummy things to make an even yummier, but exceedingly simple, pasta sauce.


  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 med cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 14oz can diced tomatos (salt-free if possible)
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Dash of sugar
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/4 c fresh basil, rough chopped
  • Fresh grated parmasean cheese (optional, hi FA)
  • Pasta (linguine or spaghetti)

Pre-heat oven to 400. Heat an oven-proof skillet on the range until medium-hot. Add oil. When oil is hot, toss in chopped garlic and stir. Let garlic cook for 20-30 seconds, then add the can of diced tomatoes (do not drain, add all the juice and stuff too). Stir. Add pepper, salt, sugar, and stir again. When oven is heated, settle tomatoes into an even layer in the bottom of the skillet and put it in the oven. Bake uncovered for about 20 mins. After sauce has finished baking, add basil and stir well. Let it sit for a minute or two so the basil wilts nicely.

While the sauce is baking, cook pasta in a generous quantity of salted water. Drain.

Top pasta with sauce, top with parmasean cheese. Yum.
