Tomato Pasta Recipe

Enjoy the comforting and flavourful tomato pasta! This dish is perfect for a quick and satisfying meal, and you can always customise it by adding cooked vegetables, grilled chicken, or shrimp for extra variety.


  • 8 ounces (225 grams) pasta (such as spaghetti or penne)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 ounces/400 grams) diced tomatoes (or 4-5 fresh tomatoes, diced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, for a hint of spice)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves, chopped (for garnish)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional, for serving)


  1. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet or saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1-2 minutes until fragrant and golden.
  3. Add the diced tomatoes to the skillet, along with their juice. If using fresh tomatoes, cook them for a few minutes until they start to soften and release there juices.
  4. Stir in the dried basil, dried oregano, and red pepper flakes (if using). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and let the tomato sauce simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. This will allow the flavours to meld together and the sauce to thicken slightly.
  6. Once the sauce has thickened to your liking, add the cooked pasta to the skillet. Toss well to coat the pasta with the tomato sauce.
  7. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes to heat the pasta through.
  8. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh chopped basil leaves.
  9. Serve the tomato pasta hot, with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
