  • 3 Cup Cherry Tomatoes (1.5 pints, red and yellow cherry tomatoes)
  • 1/4 Cup Wine (good qaulity cooking wine, or leftover white wine)
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil (replace 1 tbsp oil with sun dried tomato oil)
  • 1 lbs Pasta (linguine, or spaghetti )
  • 1/4 tsp Chili Flakes
  • 2 Garlic (cloves, whole, just crushed)
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese (grated, use more if prefer)
  • 1 Cup Basil (bunch of fresh leaves, coarse chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper (to taste)



  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. I like to bring pot of water to rolling boil. When boiling, season with salt, add pasta
    and cook until just al-dente.
  2. While pasta is cooking, in a wide saute pan, heat olive oil with sun dried tomato olive oil (if using) or all olive oil. Add smashed
    garlic with chili flakes and let garlic perfume the oil for 30 seconds.
  3. Now, add cherry tomatoes and let them slightly burst in the pan. (about 4-5 minutes on medium high heat).
  4. Once few tomatoes has started to burst, Fish out the garlic. (discard or refrigerate it to flavor a sandwich later.) Deglaze the pan
    with wine, bring to boil, and let alcohol cook-off (1-2 minutes). Season with salt. Add in cooked and drained pasta with half of
    parmesan cheese. Coat pasta in tomato, wine and parmesan sauce. Add chopped basil.
  5. Sprinkle remaining parmesan, and serve pasta while still hot.
