Ingredients
  

  • 2-3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 small thinly sliced garlic cloves
  • 1.5 cups cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon sun-dried tomatoes optional
  • freshly chopped basil to taste 3 leaves
  • pinch of salt for the tomatoes
  • chilli flakes optional
  • boiling salted water for the pasta
  • pasta of choice
  • 2-3 tablespoons pasta water for the sauce

Instructions
 

  • Add your pasta to boil and In the meantime start the sauce. Add the olive oil to a cold pan on the stove with the garlic and sun-dried tomatoes. The reason we do this is so that it comes up to temperature together in the oil gets infused with the garlic.
  • Turn the heat on medium-high and as soon as the oil gets hot add in the cherry tomatoes. You want them to sizzle. Add a pinch of salt and stir everything for 2-3 minutes.
  • The moment the cherry tomatoes are nice and soft and the garlic isn’t burnt the sauce is ready and turn the heat off.
  • Add your cooked pasta with a bit of the starchy pasta water and gently stir it together. Serve with fresh basil, parm and a touch of olive oil is optional. Enjoy

Notes

The pasta water should be a salty as the sea as this is your only chance to flavour your pasta. Chilli flakes are optional
