Summer Garden Pasta (the easiest recipe around)
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/8 cup olive oil
4 large basil leaves, julienned, plus extra for serving
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (I used even less)
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash of ground black pepper
1/2 pound dried angel hair pasta
1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Combine cherry tomatoes, olive oil, basil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature for approximately 4 hours. This is easy and quick.
Bring a large pot of water with a splash of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of salt to a boil and then add the pasta. Cook al dente and drain the pasta.
Add to the bowl with the cherry tomatoes.
Add the cheese and some extra fresh basil leaves and toss well.
Serve in soup bowls and enjoy.
