Serves: 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10-15 minutes



¼ cup Tutto Sicilia Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2-3 garlic cloves, minced

12-15 ounces tomato sauce 

1 jar Tutto Sicilia Sun Dried Tomato Paté 

1 lb pasta, preferably penne, linguine or rigatoni  

Italian parsley, chopped

parmesan, grated


How to Make

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add pasta. Cook until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water before draining.

While the pasta is cooking, in a large saucepan over medium-low to medium heat, add the Tutto Sicilia Extra Virgin Olive Oil and gently sauté the garlic for 2-3 minutes, making sure not to brown the garlic. Add tomato sauce and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Add the entire jar of Tutto Sicilia Sun Dried Tomato Paté and continue to simmer for 5-7 minutes more. 

When the sauce is ready, add the pasta and Italian parsley, stirring to combine. Add ½ cup of the reserved pasta water if needed to loosen the sauce, and stir. 

Best served immediately and topped with parmesan cheese.
