This really simple recipe helps me whip up an instant meal with just the basic pantry ingredients that I usually have stocked up in my kitchen. I also baked some fresh bread the day I ate this meal, so it was quite incredible to mop up the sauce off my plate with slices of fresh baguette.
1-2 tomatoes, roughly diced
2-3 sprigs fresh oregano
3-4 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
1 red bird chilli
1-2 tablespoons butter
3-4 tablespoons fresh cream
grated parmesan cheese
pasta of your choice (I used fresh ravioli), cooked as per instructions
Heat the butter in a pan. Once the butter has melted and begun to bubble, stir in the garlic and the red chilli.
Wait till the garlic cooks on low flame, be careful not to burn the garlic. Once the garlic has cooked, stir in the tomatoes, fresh herbs and salt.
One the tomatoes have cooked, stir in the fresh cream. Mix gently, then allow to simmer for 3-4 minutes. Pour over cooked pasta and garnish with fresh herbs and parmesan cheese.
