Pasta with Cherry Tomatos

This is a simple but delicious dish. I used farfale – bow pasta – but you could substitute just about any other shape – just use what you have on hand! This dish is all about simplicity.

~1 cup cooked pasta
~1/2 punnet cherry tomatoes (approximately 12-15 tomatos), halved
~1 clove of garlic, finely diced
~plenty of fresh chopped basil or italian parsely
~olive oil
~shaved fresh parmesan

Gently fry the garlic in a good splash of olive oil. Add the tomatos and cook for 1 min. Add the pasta and turn off the heat. Season with fresh ground pepper and sea salt. Add the fresh herbs and toss to combine. Serve immediately with shaved parmesan.

Too easy!

Serves 1 with approximately 350 calories. Lower the calories my omitting the oil and cooking the garlic and tomato in stock or white wine instead. Increase the calories by upping the oil, parmesan, or increasing the serving size.

Serve this with whatever wine you happen to have open! It would suit red or white equally!

    Hi darling,
    I haven’t checked your blog for awhile and poof! You have written a whole heap of entries!! Good work!
    I also think that the new format is quite nice.
    I make a recipe quite similar to this one but for a protein punch I add in a tin of chunky tuna in brine. Tuna and basil have a really nice flavour together.
