Ingredients

  • ¼ Cup olive oil
  • 2 Cups cherry tomatoes
  • 5 oz parmesan cheese
  • 2 Cups pasta your favorite kind
  • 2 Garlic cloves minced

  • Fresh Basil for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Add the olive oil, cherry tomatoes and parmesan cheese and toss to evenly coat. Sprinkle with pepper and take to the oven.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the top of the parmesan cheese is golden and the tomatoes are roasted.
  • While the tomatoes and parmesan are baking, prepare the pasta according to package directions. Reserve ⅓ Cup cooking pasta water.
  • Remove from the oven. Add the garlic and stir everything together. The tomatoes and the cheese will mix together creating a creamy sauce.
  • Add the pasta and the reserved cooking water and toss until everything is well coated.
  • Sprinkle with pepper and serve with basil.

Notes

This pasta is super easy to make! The flavor is really similar to the oven you get at restaurants that’s cooked in a giant parmesan wheel.
If you prefer the garlic flavor to be milder, add it to the baking dish in the last 5 minutes of baking.
  • Cook the pasta al-dente as it will continue to cook once you've drained it and when it is stirred into the sauce.
  • Make it a fully meal by stirring in cooked shredded chicken.
