Strozzapreti are the perfect pasta shape for this simple roasted tomato sauce. Fresh cherry tomatoes create a thick and creamy sauce when roasted or sauteed. The addition of basil and garlic add to the lovely summer flavor and lighten up the dish.
The best part is how quick and easy this is to make, making it perfect for a busy weeknight meal. From start to finish it can be done in under 30 minutes.

Prepare the tomatoes
Remove the stem of the tomatoes and cut in half. Place in a stainless steel skillet along with the basil. Season with olive oil, salt and pepper and mix to combine.If you do not have an ovenproof skillet you can use a baking sheet.

Remove the garlic and smash the tomatoes slightly with a fork.

Strain the pasta and add to the tomato sauce along with a splash of the pasta cooking water.
