How to make Tagliatelle Pasta Recipe With Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce

  1. To begin making Tagliatelle Pasta Recipe With Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce we will first cook the pasta according to the cooking instructions on the pasta packet.

To cook the Pasta 
  1. Heat 500 ml of water in a stock pot to cook the pasta. Once the water starts to boil, add in the pasta. 

  2. The pasta will take about 10 - 12 minutes , cook until the pasta is al dente (which is just cooked). 

  3. Drain all the water and wash the pasta under running water, and drizzle olive oil and toss the pasta well and set aside. 

To Make the Tomato Basil Sauce 
  1. Boil the tomatoes with required water in a saucepan. Once you see the tomato skin peeling, switch off the heat.

  2. When the skins has come off then you know the tomatoes are ready. Peel the skin off the tomatoes, remove the core of the tomato and roughly chop them.

  3. Do keep all the juices the tomatoes release, this will add body to the tomato sauce. Keep the chopped tomatoes aside.

  4. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped garlic and onions. Stir for a few seconds until it begins to sizzle in the oil and the onions soften.

  5. At this stage, add in the chopped tomatoes and the roughly chopped basil leaves, some salt, sugar, black pepper corns and stir well to combine.

  6. We will now use a hand blender to coarsely puree the ingredients together to get a saucy texture.

  7. Cover the pan with the lid slightly ajar and simmer the mixture for 20 to 30 minutes until the sauce becomes thick.

  8. Keeping the lid slightly ajar helps to thicken the sauce by evaporating the excess water.

  9. Season the sauce with salt to taste, red chilli flakes for the punch and give it a stir. Add in boiled tagliatelle pasta and toss well until well combined.

  10. Your Tagliatelle Pasta Recipe With Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce is ready to be served onto a serving plate, with Parmesan flakes and fresh tomato basil as garnish.
