Easy cherry tomatoes and garlic pasta. Al dente Spaghetti tossed in a simple cherry tomato, garlic, butter sauce.


  • 130 grams Spaghetti
  • 150 grams Cherry Tomatoes (approx. 1 cup)
  • 1 tsp Garlic (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup Pasta Water
  • 3 tbsp Basil Leaves (chopped)


  1. Boil the pasta as per package instructions. Reserve some pasta water to be used later for the pasta sauce.
  2. Heat some butter in a pan and add chopped garlic to it. Let this cook on low flame for about 2 minutes until the garlic turns light brown in colour. Keep an eye on it, as you don't want to burn the garlic.
  3. Add the cherry tomatoes and let cook on medium low flame for about 4-5 minutes until the tomatoes start turning soft in texture. Smash them down with the help of a spatula and cook further.
  4. Once the tomatoes are cooked, add the starchy pasta water, salt and pepper. Let this cook for 2 more minutes and add the pasta to the this.
  5. Toss the pasta until the spaghetti is nicely coated with the tomato sauce.
  6. Transfer them to serving bowls and sprinkle some chopped basil leaves before serving.
