1 lb. pasta, cooked and drained, some water reserved
1/4 lb. pancetta, diced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
1 16 oz. jar of Tomato Bliss Heirloom Tomatoes
1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese
Prepare the pasta and set aside, reserving about a cup of pasta water.
In a large pan over medium heat, cook the pancetta until browned. Using a slotted spoon, remove from pan and set aside. If you're vegetarian, simply skip this step and proceed to cooking the garlic!
Add the olive oil to the pan, and cook the garlic over a medium-low heat until lightly browned and fragrant.
Add the jar of Tomato Bliss Heirloom Tomatoes and the reserved pasta water, and cook until slightly reduced.
Add the cooked pasta to the pan, and cook for a few moments to allow the sauce to stick to the pasta.
Add the grated parmesan cheese and the pancetta, if you are using it, and then serve.
