Simple Heirloom Tomato Pasta

 

½  lb pre-cooked pasta (drained and rinsed under cold water) or simple fresh pasta(recipe to follow)

3 cups diced and salted heirloom tomatoes (reserve water that leeks)

2 Tblsp crushed garlic

1 cup finely sliced leek rings (rinsed)

2 cups vegetable stock

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 cup fresh chopped parsley

Fresh ground pepper

 

In a large sauté pan heat half the oil and add the garlic and leeks.  When they start to brown (about 4-6 min) add the tomatoes with any juice that may have dropped. Simmer 3-4 minutes and then add the stock and pasta. Let the pasta “tan” in the sauce (tanning is when the pasta absorbs the sauce) simmer until half of the sauce is absorbed- stir in the olive oil and parsley- season with black pepper, check the salt and serve immediately.
