With a no-cook, stir-together sauce, this easy Cherry Tomato Pasta is an easy family dinner. And OH so delicious and fresh.
– Cherry tomatoes – Basil – Garlic – Olive oil – Salt – Pasta – Parmesan, optional
Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Place a knife flat on the garlic and hit it to mash. Remove the skin (it should come right off.)
Place the tomatoes, garlic, basil, salt, and olive oil in a bowl. Stir together. You can use any color of cherry tomatoes.
Place a large pot of water over high heat and cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain.
Remove the garlic from the sauce. (It is very, very spicy when fresh—if you like that, mince it up and add it to your portion!)
Toss the pasta with the sauce and serve the pasta topped with Parmesan and/or black pepper as desired.
You can blend the sauce and use just a little on the kid’s portion if this is a new flavor. If you use a long noodle, cut it up for toddlers so it’s easier to eat.
Use any pasta you prefer and cut up for easier eating for the kids as needed. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-5 days. Reheat to serve.
