  • Olive oil non-fat cooking spray

  • 8

    cloves garlic, very thinly slices

  • ¼

    cups finely chopped basil

  • 3

    tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced fine

  • kosher salt to taste

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • ¼

    cups dry white wine

  • ½

    cups fat free chicken broth

  • optional: teaspoon of fresh parmesan to sprinkle each serving


Spray a large skillet with the olive oil cooking spray and heat at low to medium termperature. Add the garlic and gently roast on low to medium heat, be very careful not to brown garlic. This should take approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Add the basil, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Now add the wine raising the heat slightly and cook for about 1 minute. Pour in chicken stock and cook until sauce reduces to a gravy-like consistency, raising the heat again if necessary. At this point reduce heat to low. Drain and rinse pasta, toss in sauce and serve. You can top with a little parmesan.
