Garlic Sun-dried Tomatoes Sauce & Prosciutto Over Spaghetti

I have bought a large jar of sun-dried tomatoes the other day at Costco thinking that I could do something with it one day. Guess what? Today is that ONE day. There’s no meat or vegetables or much ingredients in the fridge tonight. I could only turn to the sun-dried tomatoes. A whole giant jar sitting in the fridge waving at me…”pick me pick me pick me!” I do not like to say “no”. It’s hard to say “no”. It’s rude to say “no” sometimes…with sun-dried tomatoes! With a few ingredients I have sitting in the kitchen, twenty minutes later, there is this scrumptious pretty looking pasta plate for dinner. It’s easy. It’s minimal ingredients. It’s the ONE you have to try!

Garlic Sun-Dried Tomatoes Sauce & Prosciutto Over Spaghetti

Adapted from Penne with Sun-dried Tomato Pesto by Giada De Laurentiis
Servings: 4
Ingredients:
12 oz. spaghetti
1 jar of 8.5 oz or 5 tablespoon sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup of freshly grated mozzarella
4 slices of prosciutto
Italian basil for garnish (optional)
Preparations:
Cook the spaghetti in a large pot of boiling water until tender or al dente which takes about 8 minutes. Remember to stir occasionally. Drain when is done.
Meanwhile, heat a pan on medium with 1 teaspoon of olive oil from the sun-dried tomatoes. Fry the minced garlic until golden brown. In a bowl, blend together the fried garlic, sun-dried tomatoes with oil, salt and pepper.
Plate the spaghetti. Add part of the grated mozzarella on top of the hot spaghetti. Then drizzle the sun-dried tomatoes sauce in the center. Place the prosciutto around the sun-dried tomatoes for a beautiful presentation.
Garnish with basil
