  • 1 pound of spaghetti
  • 1-quart cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup packed basil leaves
  • 10 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup pasta water


Step 1

In a pot with boiling water, cook the spaghetti pasta. Next, wash the cherry tomatoes, divide them in half, then cut the half in half. Place them in a bowl. Next, slice four cloves of garlic thinly. After this, turn on the heat of the stove at about medium-low. Put regular olive oil in a pan, then cooked the sliced cloves of garlic on medium-low heat. When the garlic started to turn golden, add 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper. Mix it. After the pepper cooks enough, add the cherry tomatoes and set the heat to medium, then stir them around. Take a bit of pasta water and pour it into the tomatoes. Turn the heat to medium-high at this point.

After cooking the pasta, remove it from the stove, then add the basil leaves. Give it a good mix, then transfer it to a plate. Pour a couple of tbsp of extra virgin oil on top.
