Whether you enjoy this as a vegetarian supper, a side dish or add grilled chicken or fish on top, my Cherry Tomato Pasta here is on the table in no time!  Use g-free noodles and it’s Celiac friendly too!


  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • about 2 or 3 cups of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • a handful of basil, roughly chopped
  • one pound of pasta cooked to al dente (we use gf fettuccine)
  • about a cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • grilled chicken, fish or pork to top, optional


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add in a liberal drizzle of your EVOO along with your chopped red onion and a generous pinch of both salt and pepper.  Sauté about five minutes and then add in your chopped garlic to sauté another minute or two.
  2. Stir in your cherry tomatoes and another pinch of salt and pepper and allow them to sauté about five minutes before adding in your basil for another minute.
  3. After your veggies have sautéed a minute, add your hot cooked to al dente pasta into the skillet and toss everything together with your Parmesan cheese.
  4. Plate alone or with something yummy off the grill on top and serve!
