Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes - Under $2 Garden Fresh Dinner

This is a great recipe when all those cherry tomatoes come in the garden!

1/2# pasta
1-2 pints of cherry tomatoes
3 tbsp olive olive
1/2 onion, diced
1 clove of minced garlic
3 tbsp fresh chopped basil
salt & pepper to taste

Turn on pasta water to boil, wash and halve the cherry tomatoes.

Saute onion in olive oil in large skillet for a couple of minutes, add cherry tomatoes and garlic and let cook for 20 minutes, meanwhile cook the pasta.

Add the pasta directly from the boiling water and stir, top with basil and salt and pepper (sorry I took the last picture before the basil)!

    I have lots of cherry tomatoes and this looks great. I am going to plan on making this for lunch tomorrow.
