Cherry tomato Whole Wheat Pasta

Written By Srimathi Mani on Monday, July 21, 2008 | 10:33 PM

Remember that I had bought 2 crates of cherry tomatoes from the local farm produce store and I had used only 3/4Th of the first crate for the salad and the remaining had to be used. Today for dinner I made a simple pasta. I used whole wheat organic instead of regular pasta from Trader Joe's, mixed 2 tbsp of olive oil for the pasta on the whole and added 1/4 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese and made it as healthy as possible. The pasta was moist and very hearty and one could taste the tomatoes in spite of the garlic presence. My entry to Healthy Cooking hosted by Fun and Food for the month of July and AWED-Italian hosted by Culinary Bazzar for the month of August.



Gadgets:

Stock pot
Mixing spoons
Baking tray
Oven
Bowls



Ingredients:

Cherry Tomatoes - 3/4 Th of a crate

Whole wheat Pasta Organic - 1 packet

Water for cooking the pasta

Pepper

Sea salt

Olive Oil for tomato - 1 tsp

Olive oil for pasta - 5 tsp

Garlic - 12 cloves minced

Pasta seasoning - 3 tsp

Parmesan cheese shredded - 1/4Th cup



Preparation:
1. Boil the water for the pasta as per instructions in the back of the packet.

2. In the meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450 degrees and in a baking tray place the washed cherry tomatoes and taking 1 tsp of olive oil in your hands nicely coat the tomatoes.

3. Add the garlic, salt and pepper to it and when the oven is ready place the tray in it for 15 minutes.

4. Cook the pasta with salt and when done do not throw away the pasta water. Store it in a bowl. Transfer the pasta into another bowl. Add the pasta seasoning.

5. Mix the remaining oil into the pasta water and keep adding 1/3 cup of water back into the pasta and keep the pasta covered until the tomatoes are cooked.































6. When the tomatoes are ready add the pasta on the top in the baking tray and toss it well.

7. Serve the pasta and add some cheese on the top.

  6. Sounds almost like the pasta I made in Rome recently in an apartment we rented -- except I had no garlic. And I love garlic.
