1/2 lb. box of your favorite pasta (Seashells, Ziti. or Rotini are good choices!)
Put in large pot with approx. 1 1/2-2 qts. of water
Cook until tender but slightly firm to bite. About 7-10 min. (pasta will be larger than it was, but not overdone-”mushy”)
Depending on your preference, drain part of the water off- ( for a “more like soup” dish, leave most of the water in pot.)
Add 1 quart of canned tomatoes.
Also add approx. 1-1 1/2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive oil, or your favorite vegetable oil.
Salt and Black pepper to taste.
Bring to full rolling boil for a few minutes and then let simmer about 5 minutes.
Note: You can adjust quantities of Pasta and tomatoes as needed for number of servings needed.
Leftover Macaroni and Tomatoes, when stored covered in refrigerator and then reheated, is delicious!
