No Cook Caprese Sauce

Summary

Delicious pasta sauce doesn’t have to be slow cooked for hours – this no-cook sauce has a lighter, fresher flavor that develops in just 15 minutes - while the pasta cooks! 

What You Need

  • 1 can (28 oz.) Contadina® Crushed Tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 to 2 tsp. minced garlic, to taste
  • 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. cayenne, to taste
  • 1 lb. dry pasta
  • 1 cup diced fresh mozzarella cheese (1/2-inch pieces) or crumbled goat cheese

Instructions

  1. COMBINE all ingredients except pasta and cheese in a large bowl.  Let stand 15 minutes for flavor to develop.
  2. MEANWHILE, cook and drain pasta according to package directions. 
  3. TO SERVE, add hot pasta to bowl with sauce; toss. Stir in cheese. Or, for a heartier dish, set aside 1 cup of sauce from bowl.  Add hot pasta to bowl and toss; transfer to a serving platter.  Top pasta with sliced cooked chicken and spoon remaining sauce over chicken.
