Dinner Thursday 25 October 2007 - Penne with Creamy Tomato Sauce

Penne with Creamy Tomato Sauce
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 fat vine tomatoes, peeled, de-seeded & chopped
1 tablespoon tomato puree
1 teaspoon sugar
pinch of marjoram
a few fresh basil leaves
125g quark
80g penne (dry weight)
20g Parmesan cheese, grated

To make the sauce, cook the garlic in the olive oil for a few seconds, then add the tomatoes, tomato puree, sugar and herbs. Cover and cook over low heat until tomatoes have broken down in to a pulp, about 15 minutes.

While the sauce is cooking, get your pasta on because it will take fairly close to the same time to cook.

To serve, add the quark and hot, well drained pasta to the tomato sauce and toss well to combine. Be careful not to over heat the quark or it will split. Garnish with the Parmesan and a few shreds of fresh basil and serve.
