  2. Add in 2 cloves of minced garlic and stir until fragrant.

  3. Once fragrant, add in half a red onion, diced.

  1. When bowtie pasta is cooked al dente, toss it into the sauce.

  2. Mix together the sauce and pasta. Add seasonings to taste. (I found that adding more salt at this step enhanced the flavor)

  3. Add 1/4 a cup of pasta water (or as much as necessary) to help the sauce have a smoother consistency.
