This spicy tomato pasta dish is easy and requires just a few ingredients, but tastes fancy enough to fool anyone into thinking you're an Italian chef.


  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 - 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 1/2 cups whole coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 pound angel hair pasta, (regular spaghetti, penne, or linguine would also work)


  1. In a deep pot, heat olive oil to medium and add minced garlic and red pepper flakes. Saute 2 minutes until fragrant.
  2. Pour in tomatoes, coconut milk, and water. Add salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  3. If you have an immersion blender, blend the sauce in the pot for about 1 minute. This helps to puree some of the tomatoes and combine the sauce. You can also pour the sauce into a blender to combine.
  4. Bring the sauce to a boil and add pasta. Cook until pasta is al dente, about 10 minutes.
  5. Serve and garnish with fresh basil.


If you don't like spicy food – dial back the amount of red pepper flakes or eliminate them completely. The dish will still be delicious!
