Organic Cherry Tomato & Basil Pasta Recipe

Organic Cherry Tomato & Basil Pasta Recipe

Yield: 1-2
prep time: 10M cook time: 10M total time: 20M


  • 16 oz of whole-grain linguine (bow-tie or penne pasta may also be used as a substitute)
  • 5 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup of fresh basil
  • 1 red onion
  • 5-7 cloves of garlic (depending on your preference)
  • 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar or glaze
  • Dried Oregano
  • Ground black pepper
  • Salt


Organic Cherry Tomato & Basil Pasta Recipe

  1. Fill a pot about ¾ full with water and boil it over high heat.
  2. Once the water in the pot is boiling, add 16 oz of whole grain linguine into the pot. Turn down the heat slightly and cook pasta to your desired liking or cook to the packaged instructions if available. I prefer to cook my pasta al dente, which means my pasta is a bit harder and firm.
  3. Once the pasta is finished cooking, save about ¼ cup of hot pasta water to use for later. Begin to remove the pasta from heat and strain the water. Then, add the cooked pasta back into the pot with a few tablespoons of the hot pasta water we saved.
  4. Begin to heat up a pan to make your tomato sauce.
  5. While the pan is heating up, slice 1 red onion into thinner strips and add them to the pan with a pinch of salt. Cook until the red onion strips appear to “sweat”.
  6. Peel 5-7 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop about 4-6 cloves of garlic (depending on your preference) and grate 2 cloves of garlic.
  7. When the red onions appear translucent in the pan, turn the heat down to about medium heat and add the garlic to the pan. Stir the ingredients together in the pan so they are combined. Let the garlic sear for 1-2 minutes. Add ¼ cup of hot water to the pan.
  8. Wash the tomatoes and add to the pan. Add another ¼ cup of hot water to the pan. Let the tomatoes cook and soften in the pan for about 3-4 minutes. You may also use a tomato masher to gently press and pop the tomatoes.
  9. Season your pasta tomato sauce with spices such as dried oregano and fresh ground black pepper.
  10. Chop half of your basil leaves and add them to the sauce. Add 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar or glaze and simmer 2-3 minutes into the sauce. Taste your tomato sauce and adjust to your liking. Then, remove the pan from heat.
  11. Take your cooked pasta and place it onto a serving plate. Add the tomato sauce to the pasta and use cooking tongs to gently mix. Garnish your pasta with any remaining basil (torn or ribboned), and slightly drizzle balsamic vinegar or glaze on top of your pasta to your liking.
  12. You have made the perfect organic cherry tomato & basil recipe, serve and enjoy!
