  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 portions 1x


  • 1 pound linguine
  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 C diced shallots
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes ( optional)
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 10-12 fresh basil leaves
  • parmesan cheese to taste


  1. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and add olive oil, shallot, garlic, red pepper flakes, black pepper and tomatoes.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions. When done reserve 1/2 C pasta water.
  3. While pasta is cooking, use a fork and as tomatoes start to soften, slowly smash them being careful not to get “squirted” by the tomatoes.
