Meatless Monday: Garlic and Basil Capellini

April 16, 2012 at 2:17 pm Leave a comment

8 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3 cups seeded and diced fresh tomatoes
1 cup fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (if desired)
Freshly ground pepper to taste
8 ounces capellini
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons shaved Parmesan cheese

Lightly coat a heavy nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Place over medium heat and add the garlic slices. Cook slowly until garlic is lightly and evenly browned. Reduce heat to low and add tomatoes, basil, salt (if using), and pepper. Cook just until the tomatoes are heated through, about 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook capellini according to package directions to al dente; drain and place on a pasta plate or in a large bowl. Drizzle pasta with olive oil and toss to evenly coat. Arrange the hot tomato mixture on top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese shavings. Serve at once, tossing the mixture as you serve.
