As usual, the tomatoes are cooked in a way that enhance their flavor and facilitate the release of lycopene, which a phytonutrients believed to have cancer protecting properties, and without burning the oil, which can release some cancer inducing compounds when it goes pass its smoking point.

If you choose wheat pasta, I wold suggest to go an organic quality to avoid pesticides like glyphosate, or even better a can choose an organic wholemeal pasta, like Biona or Seeds of change.
