This was grand! My toddlers wanted nothing to do with the tomatoes or the basil (my 4 year old is a tomato snob who only eats them raw) but they ate the pasta up. I loved how the pasta water made a nice sauce. I will make it again.
So quick and easy!
Your list of ingredients calls for garlic, thinly sliced. Am I crazy? Because I keep rereading the recipe and can’t find when it is added to the dish. I’m assuming it is with the olive oil and tomatoes?
Hi, Jody! The garlic is listed in Step 3! You add it right after the tomatoes start to collapse, and then continue cooking for another two minutes. Enjoy!
Added shrimp and was amazing!!!! We love garlic so I added three more cloves. Next time I’ll add more tomatoes. But this is such a winner!!! Very versatile.
Oh, shrimp is a great idea!
I have a no-cook pasta recipe using these ingredients. I put the olive oil, cherry tomatoes, garlic, salt and pepper, basil (and sometimes add pearled mozzarella) into a pan and place it on top of the water coming to a boil for the pasta. Once the water is boiling, I remove the pan with the “sauce,” cook the pasta, drain and toss with the warmed sauce and top with parmesan. Dozens of variations on this technique with different cheeses and herbs. So simple and so fresh.
Perfect! I am being over run by homegrown cherry tomatoes that are oh so delicious right now. Can’t wait to make this!
Very happy to share good things together…
