RECIPE BY ALEXANDRA PASKAOF@PLANTBASED.TRAVELER

Here’s a 5-Ingredient pasta dish for you: Spaghetti with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, Garlic and Spinach! It’s the perfect easy weeknight meal, and of course ideal for all pasta-lovers!

INGREDIENTS

Makes 2 servings

  • 2 servings of spaghetti
  • (reserve 1 cup of pasta water) 
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes 
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 
  • A good drizzle of (garlic infused) olive oil 
  • A few handful of baby spinach 
  • Sea salt to taste 
  • Fresh basil 

 

METHOD
  • Cook pasta according to package directions. Opt for bronze cut spaghetti if you can, it’s the best imo! Reserve 1 cup of pasta water before draining. 
  • Heat up olive oil in a heavy bottom pan with a lid or a Dutch oven. 
  • When the oil is hot, add cherry tomatoes, cover them with the lid, and ‘pan roast’ them for 5 minutes. The tomatoes should be lightly charred, burst, and have released some of their juices. Give them an additional couple of minutes if needed. 
  • Add garlic and spinach, and stir everything for 1-2 minutes.
  • Toss with spaghetti and about 1/2 cup of pasta water (more to preference). Season to taste with salt. 
  • Top with some fresh basil, and enjoy!
