With so many fresh tomatoes from the garden, easy, summer meals are key.
One of my favorites is quick sauteed cherry tomatoes over pasta with yummy cheese.
1-2 cloves of garlic, diced
1/2 onion, diced
cherry tomatoes, however many you want per person
penne pasta, cooked and drained
fresh basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, and parsley
salt and pepper to season
red pepper flakes (optional)
Start a pan of boiling water and salt it well. Add pasta.
Meanwhile, sautee onions and garlic in a pan. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook until soft. When the tomatoes are soft, add herbs and seasoning. If you want, add some red wine and cook further.
Drain the pasta and pour the tomatoes over it. Top with parmesean and mozzarella cheese.
We have both sun-gold and regular cherry tomatoes. I really love the sun-gold.
