Here’s what you should do:
Boil the Pasta:
Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil.
Add the Italian pasta of your choice and cook according to the package instructions until al dente.
Drain the pasta, reserving a cup of pasta water, and set aside.
Prepare the Tomato Sauce:
In a large skillet or saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Stir in the finely chopped onion and continue cooking until the onion becomes translucent and soft.
Simmer the Tomato Puree:
Pour the entire jar of Tomato Puree into the skillet with the sautéed onions and garlic.
Season with dried oregano, dried basil, red pepper flakes (if using), salt, and black pepper.
Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer gently for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Combine the Pasta and Sauce:
Add the cooked pasta to the tomato sauce and toss to coat the pasta evenly with the rich tomato goodness.
If the sauce seems too thick, you can add a splash of the reserved pasta water to achieve the desired consistency.
Transfer the Italian-style pasta to serving plates or a large pasta bowl.
Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese generously over the top.
Garnish with fresh basil leaves for a burst of herbal aroma.
Your Authentic Italian-Style Pasta with ShimlaRed Tomato Puree is now ready to be savoured! Serve it with a side of garlic bread and a crisp green salad for a complete and satisfying meal. Buon appetito!
