Fresh Tomatoes and Basil Spaghetti


  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook the spaghetti until tender but firm to the tooth.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, add the olive oil and set over medium high heat.
  • Add the garlic and chili to the oil and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until fragrant, stirring frequently to avoid browning.
  • Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for 5-7 minutes until the tomatoes have broken down.
  • When the pasta is cooked, drain it and add it to the pan along with some of the pasta water and toss to combine.
  • Add the basil and half of the Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve the pasta and top with the other half of the cheese.
