Spaghetti with Grape Tomatoes

Hello guys, just a quick post to share with you this fantastic pasta recipe with tomatoes from our garden. Very simply made but so fresh, filling and comforting. Just a perfect bowl of pasta and also super quick to make. Simplicity at its best!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 


2 pounds of grape tomatoes, halved
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
fresh basil, chiffonade
1 pound of spaghetti or angel hair
salt and pepper to taste

Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Heat the olive oil, add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Then add the tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste, lower the heat, cover and cook slowly for 15 minutes. Then add basil and toss well.  At this point you can add the cooked pasta, toss very well before serving and add more fresh basil and Parmesan cheese if desired.

  6. This was excellent! Thank you for the recipe. I actually poured in a little balsalmic vinegar and a splash of the red wine I was drinking with the onions and garlic. Beautiful and delicious. (It's also a great recipe with spaghetti squash instead of pasta)
