Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Garlic Blistered Tomatoes

Oh magoo! It’s 7pm on a rainy Saturday, you’ve spent most of the day, in one position, intently watching YouTube videos, and you are starving. You’ve unabashedly submitted your body to a lazy day but aren’t quite sure if you want your diet to venture into Liz Lemon territory.

Whole wheat spaghetti with garlic blistered tomatoes is a great way to quell the hunger (sorry, Cheesy Blasters)! This recipe is delicious, nutritious, and filling. That means no more working on the night cheese. Can you tell I love 30 Rock? Ok, on to the recipe…

whole wheat spaghetti with garlic blistered tomatoes

whole wheat spaghetti (a few sticks or a few pounds, depending on the state of your stomach)
1 pint grape tomatoes
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
fresh basil
red pepper flakes
Sea salt/Himalayan pink salt/any schmancy salt

Heat your olive oil in a sauté over medium high heat. Add the garlic and sauté for a minute or until golden brown. Add your grape tomatoes and let sit for 2 minutes until they start to blister. Turn off the heat, give them a stir, and let them sit for a couple more minutes. Season with your schmancy salt and red pepper flakes and set aside.

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Salt the pot and add a couple drops of olive oil. Add your pasta once the water comes to a boil and cook for 9-11 minutes or until al dente. Add your blistered tomatoes and garnish with basil. Serves 1-2.

Nom on your dish, just like this.
