Ultra Quick Farfalle Pasta with Fresh Tomato, Basil and Parm

Fresh pasta sauce: gently saute 3 or 4 chopped tomatoes,
2 or 3 cloves of garlic in a TB of olive oil for 10 minutes
while pasta is cooking.
Finish sauce with a dash of red pepper flakes,
1 Tb of butter, sea salt 
and a 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil.

Can you have pasta if you are trying to lose weight?   Yes!
In Italy pasta is seldom a main dish, it is intended as a side dish, and this explains why Italians do not have the weight issues the US has.
