Cooking pasta with tomatoes and basil:

Step 1: Prepare the ingredients.

Peel the onion, rinse with cold water, cut in half and cut into thin half rings.
Peel the garlic as well, and then crumble into very small pieces.

Fold the cherry tomatoes in a colander and rinse thoroughly with warm running water, wait until excess moisture drains. With a knife, divide each tomato in half.
Rinse the greens properly and chop into small pieces, leaving a couple of whole twigs to decorate the finished dish.

Step 2: Cook the pasta with tomatoes and basil.

Put all the ingredients in a large saucepan, cover with salt, red and black pepper, and then fill with water and put everything to boil on high heat.

All the while stirring, bring the contents of the pan to a boil, and then reduce the heat and continue cooking until the pasta is ready, that is, 7-9 minutes.

When the pasta with tomatoes and basil is ready, remove it from the heat, pour in the olive oil (it will not allow the pasta to stick together) and mix thoroughly. Let stand 1-2 minutes, then mix again and serve the finished dish to the table.

Step 3: Serve the pasta with tomatoes and basil.

Pasta with tomatoes and basil is served hot and pre-sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese. So simple, it turns out, you can cook a delicious Italian dish. And what taste and aroma it turns out, do not resist! I especially recommend this pasta to all those who do not really like to cook, but really like to eat deliciously.
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- To this paste, you can add separately fried shrimp or slices of baked chicken fillet.

- For the preparation of pasta, only durum wheat pasta is suitable.

- Instead of cherry tomatoes, you can add ordinary tomatoes, but then it is better to clean them from skins and seeds.
