I know a few ladies have been waiting ever so patiently for this recipe after my sister posted it on facebook. This is a restaurant style meal without the bill and with little work. My husband and kids cleaned up their plates and actually wanted leftovers the next day. We love pasta but are picky that its not to dry and this recipe wasn't.
12 ounces linguine
12 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes (halved or quartered if large)
1 onion thinly sliced
6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2-3/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 sprigs basil, plus torn leaves for garnish
2-3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt & black pepper
4 1/2 cups water
lots of freshly grated parmesan cheese, for serving
Combine pasta, tomatoes, onions, garlic, red pepper flakes, basil, oil, 2 tsp. kosher salt, 1/4 tsp. black pepper, and water in a large straight sided skillet. Bring to boil over high heat. Boil mixture, stirring and turning pasta frequently with tongs until pasta is al dente and water has nearly evaporated, about 9 minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper, divide among 4 bowls and garnish with basil. Serve with parmesan.
