If you love garlic, then you will love my garlicky tomato pasta recipe! You will even love it more because it takes less than 30 minutes to make!
I came up with this recipe one day when we didn’t know what to eat for dinner. I really didn’t want to cook a big meal that would take an hour or more to both prepare and cook. I looked in our pantry and found a box of spaghetti and in our fridge were cherry tomatoes and garlic. Since we didn’t have spaghetti sauce, I recalled watching a cooking show that showed how to make a wine sauce for a pasta dish and since we keep our wine fridge filled at all times – we were in luck!
This meal is in heavy rotation at our house and it’s so easy to make! You can scroll down and check out the video I made below for my step-by-step instructions. For your convenience, I’ve created a printable recipe card for you as well.
- 1 1b. of Spaghetti (1/2 of the box)
- 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
- 6-10 Garlic Cloves, minced (add as little or as much as you like)10.5 oz. Cherry Tomatoes
- Kosher Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
- 2 tbsp. Butter, unsalted
- ⅓ cup White Wine, dry preferably **If you like a bit of sauce in your pasta, you can add 2 heaping tablespoons of marinara sauce.
- Parmesan Cheese, shaved and Basil for garnish
- Boil your Spaghetti until al dente.
- In a small frying pan on medium-high heat, add olive oil. When olive oil is hot, add the garlic and stir until golden and fragrant. Add the butter and stir until melted. Add the tomatoes and stir frequently until tomatoes burst and release their juices. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Add wine. (If you want to add a bit of marinara sauce, you can add it at this time). Once the sauce comes to a boil, turn off the heat.
- Drain your pasta and place it back into the pot. Pour the sauce in the spaghetti and toss.
- Plate your pasta, top with fresh parmesan cheese and garnish with fresh basil.
- Serve and Enjoy!
Pair this pasta with a side salad and/or a warm piece of crusty bread and you have a delicious meal. Oh, and let’s not forget to pour yourself a glass of wine!
