Uncle Dave’s Pasta Recipe

This is our dinner plan for tonight and we haven't had it in awhile so I'm excited to make it. This is one of our family favorites. It’s easy and delicious and we lovingly call it Uncle Dave’s pasta. My Uncle Dave was one of the most amazing men I knew. So strong, loving, kind, happy and spread joy to all those around him. He passed away years ago but he still has an impact on my life and I think of him often. Through finding his cancer he made it possible for our entire family to find a mutated gene that about half of my family have. We all have been able to be proactive in fighting against getting the same cancer. I’m so grateful to him and the amazing example he was and is. And also so grateful for the knowledge that we will be able to be with him again.

Ok, now on to the the recipe. I’m not sure if this is his original recipe but through the grapevine this is how we make it around here.

Uncle Dave’s Pasta
-1 handful of cilantro (chopped)
-1/2 onion diced
-some minced garlic (ha I’m the worst at measuring. Maybe a TBl or two?)
-1 can diced tomatoes (I like petite, and so do my kids)
-1 box bow tie pasta
-1 jar of alfredo (I like Classico 4 cheese I believe. But any will be good!).

Chop up your cilantro.

Saute your onion in a little butter with your garlic. Once your onions are pretty translucent, throw in your tomatoes to warm them up.

Then, add in your cilantro…

While you are cooking the onions, boil your pasta. Once they are cooked dump in your jar of alfredo and mix to warm. Combine your pasta with the tomato/onion/cilantro mixture.

Serve with a French baguette and some salad and enjoy your 20 minute meal!!
