BURST TOMATO PASTA
The burst tomato pasta aside from its name really is a gift and a treat! Not only is it easy but it is such a simple dish and the flavours are just soooooo good and not to mention clean as well. Enjoying a huge bowl of this pasta will not leave you stoggy and feeling like you ate a cow. Sweet, tangy and vibrant, if summer were to have a dish this would be it!
Buttt this does not have exclusively be a summer dish, it is so quick and easy it could be a dish for any time of the year, any time of the day. Perfect for taking to work, a quick lunch or even a semi-sinful late night snack depending on how much cheese you decide to go for.
Let me BURSTTTT
1/2 Cup of Tomato Passata
2 Cloves of Garlic
1ts of Dried Oregano
Bring a pot of water to a boil
Peel and finely slice 2 cloves of garlic and set aside.
In a pan over medium heat add in some oil and your garlic cloves followed by a 2 handfulls of washed cherry tomatoes.
Give it a good fry till fragrant, add in a splash of water, cover with a lid and let the heat do its thing.
Once your cherry tomatoes are soft or on the verge of bursting (about 4-5 minutes) add in 1/2 a cup of tomato passata and give it a good mix. Put the lid back on and lower the heat to bring the sauce to a gentle simmer.
Add your spaghetti to cook according to package instructions or to your own preference.
Once your spaghetti is a minute away from being done season your sauce with 1ts of dried oregano, finely choped fresh basil, some or a lot of parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste.
Add in your pasta and along with a 1/4 cup of pasta water and give it a good mix together.
Plate up with some fresh basil and some extra cheese!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
