Mediterranean Linguine with Basil and Tomatoes Recipe is really easy and quite tasty! This only takes about 15 minutes. I cut this in half but added the full amount of basil and it was delicious.
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 "16 ounce" box linguine pasta
1 tablespoon salt, or to taste
1/2 cup Crisco® 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 pints grape tomatoes, cut in half
Salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese plus additional for garnish
18 basil leaves, cut in thin strips
Heat 6 quarts water to boiling. Add pasta and salt.
Cook for the minimum recommended time on package directions. While pasta cooks, prepare sauce.
Heat olive oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add tomatoes and garlic.
Cook and stir 2 minutes or until tomatoes are soft. Remove from heat. Stir in vinegar and pepper flakes.
Drain pasta. Add to skillet. Cook and stir 1 minute or until pasta is coated and hot.
Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper.
Stir in basil and cheese. Serve with additional cheese, if desired.
