Did everyone else have the most beautiful weekend, too? Yesterday was a perfect 75 and sunny here in NC and it couldn’t have been more gorgeous.
And now it’s Monday. Which, don’t get me wrong, it’s still another beautiful day. But it’s Monday. So I made you some pasta— my favorite kind of pasta— and it’s SO easy too!
I first made this Burst Tomato Pasta over the summer when I had pints on pints on pints of cherry and grape tomatoes in my apartment. Like every week. No joke. They always just look SO amazing at the grocery store and farmer’s market that I couldn’t pass them up! But I needed to start getting creative with my tomatoes because they were screaming to be used in the most delicious way. And what is more delicious than pasta? Few things, my friends, few things.
So I sliced those tomatoes in half, threw them in a large pan with lots of garlic and olive oil, added in a heaping handful of herbs, and cooked them till they, literally, burst! Then I poured the results over some scrumptious ancient grain cappelletti pasta and oh. my goodness. Comfort in a bowl! The burst tomatoes had this wonderfully sweet flavor that melded beautifully with the garlic and herbs in the most perfect way.
Oh, and Nate was literally licking his bowl. So I knew we had a winner here.
So that’s it. Burst Tomato Pasta on your table and in your belly in 15 minutes flat. Assuming your stove doesn’t take 20 minutes to boil water 😉 Trust me, I’ve been there before.
On a Monday, this is the kind of meal I look forward to. Simple, quick, and utterly comforting as I ease my way into the hectic work week. I promise it will make your Monday that much happier! Have a wonderful day everyone.
