Yield: 4 servings
|1 pounds||Dried Italian linguini or linguine fine|
|2 cups||Basic Tomato Sauce; see * Note|
|2 tablespoons||Crushed red chili flakes|
|1 bunch||Scallions - (abt 6); thinly sliced|
* Note: See the "Basic Tomato Sauce" recipe which is included in this collection.
Bring 6 quarts water to a boil and add 1 tablespoon salt. Place linguini in boiling water. The linguini should take 8 to 10 minutes to cook, more than enough time to assemble everything else you need to prepare if you are well organized. In a 12- to 14-inch saute pan with angled sides, heat the Basic Tomato Sauce and crushed red chili flakes to a simmer. When the pasta is al dente or cooked to your taste, drain the pasta in a colander over the sink.
Place the drained pasta into the saute pan with the sauce. Carefully mix together by shaking the pan and minimally stirring the pasta with a pair of tongs. Add the chopped scallions and bring heat to medium-high. Saute and stir briefly for 30 seconds, just until the pasta is well coated and not soupy. Pour into heated serving bowls. Serve immediately. This recipe yields 4 servings as a main course or 8 appetizers.
