Favorite Ingredients Friday (Pasta with Grape Tomatoes)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Check out my upcoming themed schedule below:

Upcoming 2009 "Themed" Schedule
June 26- Lunchbox Meals Edition
July 3- 4th of July Edition

This has become one of my favorite pasta dishes, especially since we planted cherry tomato plants in our backyard garden. I found this recipe on The Italian Chef. Enjoy!

Pasta with Grape Tomatoes

Ingredients

1/4 cup olive oil
2 large garlic cloves sliced thin
1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 large basil leaves, chopped
salt to taste
1 pound spaghettini pasta
freshly grated Parmagiano-Reggiano cheese for serving

Directions

1. Add olive oil and garlic to a large saute pan over medium heat. Cook until garlic is lightly browned, then add the
sliced tomatoes, red pepper flake, basil, and salt.
2. Saute the tomatoes until they are softened and have started to release their juices, about 5 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, bring a pot of liberally salted water to a boil, add pasta and cook until al dente.
4. Strain pasta and transfer to the saute pan with the sauce and toss until completely coated.
5. Dish out into individual serving bowls and serve with grated Parmagiano-Reggiano.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.
