Tomato Basil Penne Pasta for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. And even though it is far from being an official holiday in the Philippines, we can still find the time to give gratitude and celebrate with our families. With the challenges that the pandemic has brought to us, living each day with our families is worth celebrating and being thankful for.

One way we can celebrate is by having a meal together with our loved ones. It is during mealtimes that the most precious and heartwarming moments are shared. We get to catch up on our daily lives, talk about what we like, and just be with each other.

Importance of dining together as a family

Aside from boding together, there are many reasons why eating together is beneficial for your health. It is through having meals together that we get to connect with our family members truly. Kids especially feel safe, secure, and loved when being surrounded by loved ones while dining.

It is also where parents can reinforce good practices and family traditions for the kids to learn. Communication is also enhanced and improved through positive conversations that can help develop sound mental and emotional well-being.

And to make your family mealtimes even more enjoyable as you celebrate together, here’s an easy and delicious Penne Pasta recipe with Hida.

Tomato Basil Penne Pasta

There is no greater way than to show your grateful feelings to your family by preparing a hearty meal for them. And with Hida, you can celebrate Thanksgiving together and make a dish that they can all enjoy while the rest of you eat together.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 pack Penne Pasta
  • 1 tablespoon basil oil (replace with olive oil if not available)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 bottle of Hida’s Chorizo Bolognese Tomato Sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil

Here’s what you’ll do:

  1. Cook your penne pasta according to the instructions given on the packing. Remember to not overcook and lower the heat to oil down when the pasta has cooked through already.
  2. Take a large skillet and heat your basil and olive oil over medium-high heat. Place in your garlic and cook until it’s soft.
  3. Add in your Hida’s Chorizo Bolognese Tomato Sauce and reduce heat to medium. Stir well and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Place your mozzarella and parmesan cheese and stir it together to melt.
  5. Add in your cooked penne pasta once the cheese has started melting, and season it with fresh basil.
  6. Serve to your family and enjoy.

Feel free to adjust the ingredients however you and your family like it. As long as you enjoy a lovely meal together and give words of gratitude to each other, nothing else would matter any more than spending time and being with your loved ones.

As the world prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving soon, we hope you can also take the time to thank and share the love that you have for your family. May it be through a lavish celebration, or over a simple meal, or even just being with them at home, take a moment to show your grateful heart to them. We wish you and your family a safe and healthy Thanksgiving. — (TGM)
