1/2cupquality extra virgin olive oil
1medium onionfinely chopped
1/2teaspoonPrimal Palate Amore seasoningsee note
2cupsof mini heirloom tomatoessee note
1/2cupfresh shredded parmigiano cheese
1poundcooked & drained pasta
In a large pot, bring pasta water to a boil and cook according to package instructions. Don't forget to salt the water.
In a large skillet, heat up the olive oil over medium heat. Chop up the garlic and onion, finely and evenly. Add to the olive oil and cook until soft and translucent
When the onions are cooked, stir in the tomato paste, salt, and Amore seasoning. Combine the tomato paste well. However, it is normal for it to look like it is separated from the oil.
Add the whole mini tomatoes and cook until they become soft. Once soft, use the back of a wooden spoon and gently press on the tomatoes.
Stir in the parmigiano cheese to slightly melt. Then stir in the heavy cream.
Allow all of the ingredients to simmer for about 5 minutes until slightly thickened.
Serve over cooked pasta. I used penne for this recipe but any works well.
Note about the seasoning. I love the flavor of the Primal Palate Italian seasoning "Amore". If you don't have access to it, replace it with your preferred Italian seasoning. For the tomatoes, I used a variety that is called "midget". They are slightly smaller than a cherry tomato. Cherry tomatoes will also work well for this sauce. It is preferred to use heirloom or organic tomatoes that are full of flavor.
