Quick Cherry Tomato Pasta
Quick Cherry Tomato Pasta is an easy but luxurious dish with jammy cherry tomatoes, fragrant garlic and fresh herbs. Simple to prepare, with only 5 ingredients and 15 minutes cooking time!
Servings: 2 servings
- 200 grams pasta I prefer tagliatelle or linguine for this dish
- 300 grams cherry tomatoes
- 2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp butter 30 grams
- small bunch fresh parsley or basil chopped
Melt the butter in a non stick pan over medium heat. Add the tomatoes and stir in a pinch of salt. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook the pasta to packet instructions. Reserve a cup of the cooking water before draining.
The tomatoes should be blistering and releasing their juices. Stir in the garlic and use the back of a wooden spoon to slightly squash the tomatoes.
After 2-3 minutes, when the garlic becomes fragrant, stir in the chopped herbs plus 1-2 tablespoons of the pasta cooking water.
Toss through the pasta, using more pasta water as desired to loosen the sauce and coat the pasta. Garnish with more chopped herbs to serve.
