Sauteed Tomato and Herb Pasta

Prep Time:
15 mins
Total Time:
25 mins

We prefer cherry tomatoes to grape for sauteing; they break down better, creating a light yet luscious sauce.


  • Salt and pepper

  • ¾ pound spaghetti

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves

  • ½ cup shaved Parmesan (1 ½ ounces)


  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions, then drain and return to pot.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, combine oil, tomatoes, garlic, and thyme over medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes are soft and skins have burst, 12 to 15 minutes.

  3. Add tomato mixture to pasta; toss to combine and season. Serve warm. Top with Parmesan.
