Angel hair pomodoro is one of our favorite easy weeknight meals!  The word pomodoro means tomato in Italian – literally translated to ‘apple of gold’ which couldn’t be more perfect. In this pomodoro sauce, fresh tomatoes shine.

I love that this pasta is simple to cook on a weeknight, yet elegant enough to serve to guests. I first was introduced to pomodoro sauce when I visited a fantastic Italian restaurant in Laguna Beach, CA called Pomodoro in 2010 when I first moved to the Los Angeles area. The restaurant has since closed, however I love making that simple and delicious tomato sauce to this day. 

This sweet Italian tomato pasta is perfect when you want a fresh sauce that pairs well a long pasta like capellini (angel hair) or spaghetti.  It’s vegetarian, gluten-free, and packed with lots of veggies and good nutrients. You can read all about the health benefits of tomatoes here!

  • Angel Hair (Capellini) Pasta – I love the thin, delicate strands of angel hair pasta, they pair perfectly with this bright fresh sauce.
  • Fresh Tomatoes – I used garden cherry tomatoes for mine, and also canned.
  • San Marzano Whole Tomatoes – an essential in any good tomato sauce is getting the best quality canned tomatoes you can find! I always use San Marzano whole tomatoes, then crush them before adding to my recipes.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive & like to keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value.
  • Garlic
  • Fresh Basil
  • Pink Himalayan Sea Salt: I like to use a pink Himalayan Sea Salt in my kitchen, which has more natural minerals than plain processed table salt.  It’s inexpensive, so I’d recommend this salt if you’re looking for an easy way to level up your spice pantry.
  • Tellicherry Peppercorns: It’s amazing the flavor difference you can get with really good tellicherry black pepper.  I like these tellicherry peppercorn which is the same price is buying pre-ground, and has exponentially more flavor.
