pasta_mix_TO MAKE:

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
  2. Add pasta and cook for 8 minutes or until al dente, then drain.
  3. Pour olive oil in a large deep skillet over high-heat.
  4. Saute onions and garlic until lightly browned.
  5. Reduce heat to medium-high and add tomatoes, vinegar and chicken broth; simmer for about 8 minutes.
  6. Stir in red pepper, black pepper, basil and cooked pasta, tossing thoroughly with sauce.
  7. Simmer for about 5 more minutes and serve topped with grated cheese.

Note 1: You can add cooked chicken breast chunks or shrimp to the sauce for a great main dish.
Note 2: Almost any pasta will do, so next to angel hair [Capellini] you can also use Ziti, Tagliatelle or the smaller sized ones like Fusilli, Pappardelle, Ditalini, Penne rigate, Capunti, Farfalle, Capunti or Lumaconi.
