Hello my lovely readers!
You surely know that feeling: on some days you simply do not want to cook. The usual solution would be to get some food delivered. But there’s another option! What follows is a recipe, for which you have to leave the sofa for only a few minutes and will be rewarded with a delicious, freshly cooked pasta dish. And it’s so so easy to make…
Here’s how to make it:
Spaghetti with roasted tomatoes
makes 2-3 servings
- 600g mini cherry or roma tomatoes
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- salt, pepper
- 350 g spaghetti
- 1 handful basil leaves
- olive oil
Preheat the oven to 230° C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Wash the tomatoes and pat them dry. Peel the garlic and lightly crush it with the flat side of a knife. Put tomatoes and garlic on the baking tray and season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 20-25 minutes in the oven, turning them repeatedly.
In the meantime, cook the spaghetti according to the instructions until al dente – about 1 minute before the pasta is done add basil to the boiling water. Drain the pasta and reserve some of the cooking water. Put the pasta in a bowl and mix with the roasted tomatoes, olive oil and some of the cooking water. Serve with fresh parmesan cheese!
I didn’t promise too much, did I? Sooo simple to make and – OMG – utterly delicious ❤
Stay sweet & HAPPY COOKING!
