Additional Information:

We love the pasta at Rossopomodoro at Illums' Roof Top. The good thing about modern restaurants is that the chef prepare food in front of you. I observed how they prefer this dish. Today I made a copycat version. Daddy FECS and Little FECS loved it. It is not totally like Rossopomodoro, but come close and very delicious.

How to use leftover pasta sauce? This way of serving it is the most delicious way to serve leftover pasta and meat sauce the following day.

I like to use cherry tomatoes as they are more flavorful. These are bought from Netto or Føtex.

This is the Danish basil (Basilikum)

To cook pasta:

Bring to boil a large pot of water, add a bit of olive oil.

Add salt.

Add pasta.

Cook pasta according to instructions in the package, normally about 8-9 minutes.

Heat pan and add 1 tablespoons of cooking oil.

and 1 tablespoon of butter.

Add garlic and fry until fragrant.

Add basil leaves and fry until fragrant.

Add onion and fry until golden and fragrant.

Add pasta meat sauce made in advance, turn heat down to medium and mix well.

Add cherry tomatoes.

Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Adjust the consistency with a ladle of the water used to cook the pasta.

Add extra basil leaves.

Add pasta.

Mix well.

On a plate, add a bit of the meat sauce.

Our family likes to add some chopped carrots for the crunch.

Dish up using a fork and a ladle to twirl the pasta into a ball.

Place them nicely on the plate. 

Garnish with basil leaves.

And add some grated parmesan cheese.
