Ingredients

  • 1

    cup of cherry tomatoes

  • 1

    cup of fresh basil

  • 1

    clove of garlic

  • 1 1/2

    cups orecchiette

  • Salt and pepper

  • Olive oil

  • Parmesan cheese

  • (optional – 3 tbsp cream)

Directions

Bring a pan of water to the boil salt it generously, add the pasta, stir to separate, clamp the lid on and set a timer for 2 mins less than the packet instructions so it will be al dente ◾Bruise the garlic (by smashing it under the flat of a knife blade, or squashing it with a can or rolling pan) ◾Dice the tomatoes finely (or pulse in a processor), then put them in a bowl with the garlic, snip in the basil leaves and a good glug of olive oil (a coupel of tbsps) ◾Once the pasta timer goes off, drain the pasta (not too well, the starch in the water helps the sauce), then add the tomato mixture to the pan – picking out the garlic – and stir well ◾Turn in the heat for a minute, then grate over lots of parmesan cheese (1/2 cup ish) and black pepper. Add the cream if using and warm through ◾Serve in warmed bowls
