Making it Simple ~ Pasta with Fresh Tomato and Garlic

A simple brainy meal that ticks all the boxes: protein, carbs, veggies and fresh herbs. This dish can be made with meat or without. You can use whole wheat pasta, gluten free pasta or whatever pasta you prefer. What you really need to have on hand or purchase is fresh tomatoes and garlic along with some fresh parsley. Boil water for the pasta, add a pinch of salt to the pot and toss in the pasta when a boil begins to roll.

Meanwhile, saute onion, garlic and even green pepper if you have or like in 3 tbs of olive oil and 1 tbs of coconut oil. Add fresh diced tomatoes- about 1/2 pound and fresh dried herbs. If you want to use a ground meat, then prepare in a separate skillet; cook, drain and add to the fresh tomato sauce on the end.

This comes together so quickly you better make sure everyone is home and around the table.
