  • 1 (10 ounce) basket cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 4 ounces angel hair pasta

  • 3 basil leaves, cut into thin strips, or more to taste

  • 1 dash red pepper flakes

  • 2 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste (Optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Combine tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl until well mixed; spread on a shallow-sided baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until tomatoes are soft and wrinkled, 25 to 30 minutes.

  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook angel hair pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain; reserving a small amount of cooking water.

  5. Spoon tomatoes with their juices into a small saucepan; add basil and red pepper flakes. Mix in reserved cooking water to thin tomato mixture to desired consistency. Cook and stir over low heat until warmed, about 5 minutes; stir in pasta. Top with Parmesan cheese before serving.

Cook's Notes:

Grape tomatoes can be substituted for cherry tomatoes.

Chicken stock can be used instead of pasta water to thin tomatoes.
