Already sweet cherry tomatoes, intensified by roasting, are tossed with summery basil, tangy Feta crumbles, and angel hair pasta.

Why Try? Served warm, cold, or room temperature, this pasta is a great side or summer lunch. Keep it simple or add other favorites like bacon, green onions, or black olives.

After tasting many varieties of cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes, and cherry-grape tomatoes, we found that the best tasting ones are generally the smaller varieties and may not necessarily be the most brightly colored.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta
  • 1/4 cup olive oil plus more for drizzling
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 10 fresh basil leaves, torn into small pieces
  • 4 ounces Feta, crumbled

Preparation

  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Place tomatoes in a baking dish and toss in olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until tomatoes pop and look roasted.
  • 2 Meanwhile, boil a large pot of salted water and cook pasta for 4 to 5 minutes or until al dente. Drain and toss with roasted tomatoes, their juices, basil, and Feta, drizzling with more olive oil if needed. Serve warm or at room temperature.
