Penne with Chianti

Last evening Diane cooked us a wonderful serve of penne pasta  with the simplist of sauces:  a can of diced tomatoes with a minimum of seasonings.  It sounds sort of dull but you would be surprised at how refreshing and satisfying a dish like this can be.

She also prepared a cleansing salad after this main course.

As a berverage we enjoyed, as befitting the pasta, an excellent bottle of Borgo Sanleo Chianti.  It was an inexpensive wine but it had the DOCA appelation and tasted wonderful.

    Sautee onions in olive oil, add garlic, fresh oregano, tinned crushed tomatoes and a few chilli flakes.
