Pasta With Spicy Tomato Sauce

I love fresh tomato sauce on pasta in the summer time.  In the winter the fresh tomatoes in our area are from hot houses and have no flavor.  So when I crave tomato sauce I turn to this recipe.  Let me know what you think.

Pasta With Spicy Tomato Sauce

12 ounces Angel Hair Pasta
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 large Onion, sliced vertically
2 cloves Garlic
2 14.5 ounce cans Organic Diced Tomatoes with Italian Herbs
3/4 tsp.  Tabasco Sauce
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 Tbsp. Minced Flat Leaf Parsley 

Prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain and reserve 1/4 cup cooking water.  While water is heating for the pasta, in a large sauce pan, heat oil.  Add the onion and garlic.  Saute over low heat until tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.  Add tomatoes, tabasco sauce and salt.  Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered until liquid is slightly thickened.  Return the pasta to the pot it was cooked in.  Add sauce, flat leaf parsley, and part of the reserved cooking water.  Toss to combine.  Add additional cooking water if needed.  Pour into serving dish and top with grated Parmesan cheese.

Tomatoes have lycopene, which may reduce risk of certain cancers.  However, our bodies can't use the antioxidant unless the tomatoes are heated with oil.  This recipe is a way for us to get that lycopene and it you will enjoy eating it!  Make it for your family and let me know what you think.
