1 can of Pastene Crushed Tomatoes
1 lb of cooked Penne pasta (DiCecco is one of my favorite brands to use)
6 cloves of slivered garlic
1 tsp-1tbs of red pepper flake (for less spicy, use 1 tsp)
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup of fresh Italian parsley finely chopped
Extra Virgin Olive oil
salt and pepper
Romano and Parmesan cheese
In a large frying pan add your olive oil, garlic and hot pepper flake. The trick here is to brown the garlic as much as you can. Brown the garlic, but do NOT burn. Once this has browned, add in your tomatoes (add salt and pepper to taste) and let simmer about 5 minutes. To this add your wine and let this cook about 15-20 minutes. Add in your fresh parsley and add in your cooked pasta. Cook on the stove for about 1-2 minutes. Add in Romano cheese and Parmesan cheese. Serve!
*Add sausage, shrimp or chicken to this dish.
