Delicious, Quick and Easy Cherry Tomato Sauce

February 10, 2018

-

This is my go-to sauce for little tomatoes. The ingredient amounts are adjustable to your taste. Start the pasta water when you begin preparing the sauce and make sure the water is properly salted with at least 1-1/2 tablespoons of salt or the dish will taste bland and under-seasoned - insipido . Buon appetito!

 

Ingredients

4 plump, fresh garlic cloves, thinly sliced or finely chopped

Generous amount of really food olive oil

2 Tbs. capers, drained

Balsamic vinegar, to taste- about 1-1/2-2 Tablespoons

1-pint cherry tomatoes, halved unless really small

Butter, butter, butter!

Salt & freshly-ground pepper

Fresh basil, oregano, or marjoram, torn into small pieces with whole leaves for garnish

 

 

Method

Sauté garlic and capers in olive oil until garlic blondes. Add the tomatoes and cook gently about five minutes. Then add the herbs as much butter as your conscience allows and the balsamic vinegar. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Mix in the herbs at the end. Drain the cooked

pasta, saving a half cup or so of the water to add, if desired, to the sauced pasta. I can never resist adding another lump of butter when I toss the sauce with the pasta. Squisito!
