Starting this off with a good one, whole wheat pasta with basil and cherry tomatoes. Yum. Also, a whole lotta garlic and onions, all wrapped up in melty, gooey mozzarella with a little extra asiago on top. And it was delicious. :D
Made this for a speech on food I have due this Tuesday. Hope everybody likes it.
I'm gonna try to write out a recipe for this, don't blame me too much if you try it and it isn't exactly right. I usually just wing it and don't measure anything.
Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes
-1 box any kind of pasta (I like the whole wheat, adds color and tastes better)
-2 small bags of cherry tomatoes (on the vine is best)
-1/2 of a medium onion (white is fine, but sweet onions are better, like shallots)
-1 chopped clove of garlic
-1 tbs basil
-2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz bag)
-1 tbs olive oil
Heat up a large skillet to about med heat, then pour in the olive oil, basil, onions, and garlic. Let the onions brown a little, then add the cherry tomatoes.
When the tomatoes get a little soft, press on the halves with your spoon to release the juices, making a sauce. Let the sauce simmer for about 5 or 6 min.
After draining the pasta, mix the sauce with the pasta, then pour on all the cheese and stir, until Mozzarella is melted throughout.
