Linguine with Fresh Tomato Sauce
Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook linguine for 1 minute less than directed on package. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water.Advertisement
Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce and salt. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes, stirring once or twice.
Stir in the linguine and the reserved cooking water. Increase heat to medium; cook, uncovered, until the pasta is tender and the sauce has thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in basil, sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.
