10 Minute Pasta !

Mar 28, 2013 | All, Food | 6 Comments

Sometimes I just don’t feel like going to the grocery store, especially now with an 8 month old. Yesterday was one of those days. Luckily my husband didn’t want a lot of protein in his pre game meal so I didn’t have to trek to the grocery to get my usual pound of ground. I decided that I would use what was on hand. We ate chicken and waffles the night before so I wanted to make something fresh, light, quick and EASY! I came up with this simple recipe  using things that I already had in my refrigerator. Turns out he loved it. It’s a great vegetarian option too! Try it and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Ingredients 

2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes(halved)

1 small shallot chopped

3 cloves of chopped garlic

handful of FRESH basil chopped

a sprig of fresh rosemary

3 tablespoons of butter

3 tablespoons olive oil

a pinch of salt

1 package of Capellini pasta

Parmigiano Reggiano (to taste )

Bring a pot of COLD water to a boil on the stove. While the water is heating up, place your skillet on med high heat and sauté the butter, olive oil, garlic and shallots in a pan until the shallots become translucent (not brown). Add in the rosemary , cherry tomatoes and pinch of salt for flavor. Sauté for about 2 to 3 mins and add in your chopped basil. By now your water should have come to a raging boil. Add in your capellini pasta and cook as directed on the package (usually about 3 mins). Drain the water from the pasta and add in your tomato mixture. Mix together well and then plate the pasta. Top with fresh Parmigiano and enjoy! DSC01526 DSC01527 DSC01529 DSC01533 DSC01537 photo

  1. This is great! Thanks for the veggie post! I barely have time to cook so capellini has been my go to pasta but I have never made it with fresh ingredients. Usually I make a big pot of pasta sauce, refrigerate it and use it as needed. Nothing beats fresh. This is a definite must try.

  2. I love love love this recipe! It was amazing delicous and light(which made me love it even more) ! Thank you and I look forward to more recipes from your blog!

  3. Ms. Curry,

    You are amazing! 💯 You make it seem effortless being a Mom, Wife, Businesswoman and example for young women like me. I am a 3rd generation business owner (my Grandparents started our Ice cream shoppe in 1969. I love our business but want to take our unique ice cream recipes into stores everywhere. I’ve written letters for over 2 years trying to get an investor and the support I need but so far it’s not working. Since finding an investor hasn’t been working I’ve tried to start a beauty essential line to raise money (Shopviolitbeauty.com) and I’m being hopeful that it eventually gets off the ground. I watched your show (each episode) on The Food Network and your now new show. I pray each and everyday for an open door because ice cream is my first love of course God is first. All I need is an opportunity! My Mom, Sister and I worked 7 days a week from March to November with no days off in order to keep the business running and pay the bills. I know that getting our ine cream is stores would change our lives. Thank You for taking the time to read my story!

    You and your family are my Millenial favorites because you work hard, love even harder and give God all the glory for your success!

    Sincerely,

    Suzette Franklin
