Elbows with Fresh Tomato Sauce

A quick dinner recipe with pasta elbows and diced tomato sauce.



  1. Boil water for pasta. Dice tomato and mince both onion and garlic.
  2. Once water boils, add pasta. Heat a sauté pan with olive oil.
  3. Add onions and garlic to hot pan. Sauté till the onions are soft and clear.
  4. Add the diced tomatoes and basil.
  5. Sauté for approximately 5 minutes on medium heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Drain elbows and put them back in the pot.
  7. Toss with tomato sauce and serve.
  8. A sprinkle of parmesan is a nice but not necessary addition.

I made this tonight with 2 modifications. 1.) I used whole wheat rotini and 2.) I cut the salt to 1 tsp. It was really very good! My boys even had seconds. Thanks for sharing!
