10 ounces capellini or spaghettini
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 onions, coarsely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 (28 ounce) can no-salt-added whole tomatoes, drained and chopped, juices reserved
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup finely diced Canadian bacon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons minced fresh basil
3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the pasta until just tender. Drain well.
2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil until hot but not smoking over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, until barely softened, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until the garlic is softened, about 2 minutes.
3. Add the wine, the juices from the canned tomatoes, and the red pepper flakes to the skillet. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes, to thicken the sauce.
4. Add the chopped tomatoes, Canadian bacon, and salt. Reduce to a simmer and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in the basil.
5. Toss the drained pasta with the sauce. Serve sprinkled with the Parmesan.
