Vegan Sun Dried Tomato Pasta – How to Prepare 

Start by preparing the ingredients before cooking.

Remove the skin and chop the shallots. If you have a little more or a little less than the recipe calls for, that’s ok — no need to waste another shallot to get a precise amount. 

Rinse the Fresh Basil and chop.

Peel and mince 3 Cloves of Garlic. If you do not have a mincer, use the small holes on any grater. Generally, the grater is our go-to mincer.20190518_183608

Remove the sun dried tomatoes from the jar and chop until you have a ¼ cup.20190518_191202

Depending on how spicy you like your food will help you decide if you should remove the seeds from the Jalapeno Peppers prior to adding them to the sauce. Once the tomatoes are added, much of the heat will fade.20190518_185103

For the tomatoes, be sure to remove the skins. Then remove as much of the seeds and moisture as possible. This recipe calls for the meat of the tomato and not the moisture. Then chop. There will be some moisture as you chop. However, much of this will cook off.

Now boil the pasta water, and cook the pasta to your desired firmness.

While the water heats, combine vegan white wine, the one teaspoon of oil from the sun-dried tomatoes and the olive oil into a preheated frying pan on low. 

Add the chopped Jalapeno Pepper, Shallots, Sundried Tomatoes, and Garlic. Then raise the heat to medium and sauté for 3-4 minutes. 20190518_192337Now add and stir the chopped Tomatoes. Then reduce heat to low. 20190518_192620Simmer for 15-20 minutes until the tomatoes have cooked through. If you removed the seeds thoroughly, there should be little water when the sauce is cooked.20190518_194530Once both the sauce and the pasta are cooked, dish the pasta. Then spoon the desired amount of sauce on top of your dished pasta. Sprinkle with the chopped Fresh Basil.20190518_194709
