My mom used to make me tomato pasta frequently for dinner. Thus, making this pasta brings on my nostalgia almost every time. I was always looking forward to my mom’s tomato pasta after a tiring day at school. There is nothing better than coming home to a comforting bowl of pasta !

Nostalgia aside, I still crave this simple dish frequently now. It is the perfect meal to prepare when I am just feeling lazy and need something quick. ( to be honest, I feel lazy ALMOST ALL THE TIME.) It takes less than 30 minutes to make and the best part is, this recipe is so versatile that you can literally pair it with anything. It can be anything from making it your main to including it in your buddha bowl.
