Pasta with Tomato Sauce

(Domatesli Makarna)

<br />Pasta with Tomato Sauce
2 servings of mini bowtie pasta
1 1/2 tbsp butter

Tomato Sauce:
1 large tomato, peeled, cut in cubes
2 tbsp crushed tomato, canned
1-2 garlic cloves, mashed with salt

Red Pepper Sauce:
1 tbsp butter
Red pepper
Cayenne pepper

Boil the pasta with salty water following the instructions on the package, drain. Melt the butter in a pot. Toss the pasta and salt in it.

Meanwhile in a small pot, cook diced tomato, crushed tomato, salt and pepper. Do not over cook! Add the garlic two minutes before turn the heat off, stir.

Place pasta on a service plate. Pour the tomato sauce all over the pasta. Melt the butter in a small pan and add in the peppers. When it starts bubbling, pour over the pasta.

I love having Pasta especially served with Turkish Bread. Please give it a try, you will like it:)

*If you like sprinkle some crumbled feta cheese over the top.

Makes 2 servings.
