    skinny caprese pasta! if every light recipe tasted this delicious, i'd be a twig!

    Ingredients

    • 16 oz box pasta
    • 1 can (15 ounces) diced tomato with basil and garlic (or regular...do not drain...pour the juice right on in there!)
    • 1 tablespoons chopped garlic (i buy it in a jar, you could also buy fresh garlic...use about 4 cloves) (this is to taste...you can use more or less, or not at all)
    • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
    • 2 tablespoons basil paste. (this is the first time i've tried this, because the grocery store didn't have fresh basil. its sold in a tube by the fresh spices. it was GREAT. i also love fresh basil, use about a half cup chopped fresh basil)
    • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
    • 2 1/2 cups water
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 cup shredded asiago (adds a bit of creaminess, optional)
