Linguine con Salsa Sveltina


Love this recipe! It's my mom's friend Nadia recipe. Growing up I used to go visit "aunt Nadia" in Padova and she used to teach me lots of good healthy ways to cook pasta. The Sveltina (quicky) sauce  is a light sauce perfect for a hot summer dinner. Fast, light and delicious.

Ingredients (for 5 servings)
1 pack linguine
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 pint sliced cherry tomatoes
1 cup chopped fresh basil
4 gloves chopped garlic
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tsp sugar
Sea salt
Grated Parmesan cheese
Some basil leaves to garnish 

Cook pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, in a large saucepan heat oil over medium heat. Add tomatoes, chopped basil, chopped garlic and stir well. Add broth, sugar and cook for 4 minutes. Season with sea salt and pepper. Add linguine, toss to combine and serve. Add Parmesan cheese on pasta after it is served on plates.
