Fresh tomato & basil sauce

Fresh tomato & basil sauce

If I could eat only one thing for the rest of my life, I’d pick pasta. I’m pasta’s number one fan. I love it in all shapes and types.

Pasta pretty much goes hand in hand with tomatoes. It’s classic, simple and tasty combo. This fresh tomato and basil sauce comes together in a few minutes and is packed with so much flavour. You can’t go wrong with sweet tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic and olive oil. It just works.

Give it a try next time you experience ‘no time to cook’ situation. I’m sure you will love it!
