  • 10 ounces dried linguine
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced or 1 tablespoon bottled minced garlic
  • 2 English muffins, split
  • 3/4 cup fresh basil, chopped

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth or pasta water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup halved, pitted kalamata olives (optional)

Step 1

Heat broilers. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, set aside.

Meanwhile, in a bowl combine 1 tablespoon of the oil and about one-third of the minced garlic; brush on cut sides of muffins. Place muffins on baking sheet. Broil 3-4 inches from broiler, for 2-3 minutes, until golden. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the chopped basil; set aside.

In large saucepan heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add remaining garlic, basil and the tomatoes. Cook 2 minutes; add broth and sugar. Cook 3-4 minutes, until tomatoes soften. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in pasta and olives; heat though. Sprinkle cheese and basil.

Serve toasted muffins with pasta. Top with Parmesan and basil.
