Ingredients

  • 3

    tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 3

    large garlic cloves, sliced as thinly as possible

  • 2

    lbs cherry tomatoes, rinsed and halved

  • 1

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • 1

    cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves very thinly sliced.

Directions

In a 10 or 11 inch saute pan, heat the oil and garlic over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is softened but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste. Toss gently to coat and then raise the heat to medium. Simmer, stirring occasionally, and adjusting the heat to maintain a lively but not too vigorous simmer, until the tomatoes have been reduced to a thick, pulpy sauce, 15-20 minutes. Remove from the heat. Sprinkle on the basil, and stir to combine thoroughly. Suggested pasta: 1 lb dried farfalle Beyond Pasta: Spoon over grilled shrimp, scallops, or whitefish, spread on thick slices of grilled bread. Cheese Option: 5 oz ricotta salata, cut into a 1/4 inch dice (to yield about 1 cup).
