Tips for making this pomodoro
- Use fresh tomatoes on the vine instead of canned tomatoes. They make a whole lot of difference in the taste
- Get fresh garlic for this recipe because it is going to add more flavor than garlic powder
- I always use a stainless steel pan for making this pomodoro because it’s much easier to clean and also cooks evenly
- If you can’t find angel hair pasta, use regular spaghetti or even linguine noodles.

How to make this pasta
1) Boil about 4 quarts of water and add 2 oz of thin spaghetti (about 1.75″). Check out WikiHow’s tutorial on how to measure spaghetti. Cook for about 8 minutes. Save 1/2 cup of the water and drain the rest. Set it aside
P/S: I made this today using (Affiliate Link) lentil pasta and it came out so good. I highly recommend using non-wheat based, gluten free pastas.
2) While the water is boiling, chop 12 campari tomatoes (firm) into 4 pieces each. Set aside
3) Take 5 cloves of garlic and slice them thinly. There is no such thing as too much garlic
4) The pasta should be in the water now, so, start the cooking the tomatoes. In a pan, add 2 tsp of extra virgin olive oil and heat at medium heat
5) Add the garlic and let it brown
6) Add the tomatoes and let them cook for about 10 minutes or until all the liquid has dissipated
7) Add 3 roughly chopped basil leaves, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of oregano, 2 tsp of sugar and 1 tsp of freshly squeezed lime juice
8) Add the spaghetti and pasta water and mix well
