Farmer’s market fresh with cheese and wine included? Bingo.
While the pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet to medium heat with the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter.
When the butter has just melted, add the garlic and tomatoes with a sprinkle of salt and some crushed red pepper—as much as you like!
Let the tomatoes soften for 5 minutes until they are just starting to fall apart. Add the tomato paste, and stir for 1 minute.
Add the wine and 1/2 cup pasta water; turn the heat up if it doesn’t bubble! Allow sauce to simmer and reduce for 4 more minutes until the wine is half reduced.
Right before serving, toss the sauce with the pasta, mozzarella, basil, and remaining butter. Toss for at least 90 seconds so the cheese can melt into the sauce.
Taste, and season once more if you’d like.
Serve with as many toppings as you can fit on the plate, and dive in.
The texture is absolutely perfect, creamy and rich. You should start with 1/2 cup of cheese and go from there. If you want it cheesier and richer like me, then you can and should add 1/4 cup more. This is one of those recipes I have pinned to my fridge so that I have it close in those lazy single moments haha.
Have 30 minutes? Then you can definitely make this crazy good recipe using everyday ingredients.
