  • 12 oz pasta of your choice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 French shallots, finely sliced

  7. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes or until the skin begins to crease.
  8. In the saucepan, add the tomato mixture, reserved cooking water, and basil to the pasta and mix well to coat the pasta.
