    Chef Kate's Note:

    This dish, from Olives & Oranges by Sara Jenkins and Mindy Fox is a great way to use cherry tomatoes. "As the tomatoes lightly brown in olive oil in a hot skillet, their skins burst and their juices caramelize, giving this quick sauce a depth that one usually encounters only in slower-cooked versions," the authors write.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot but not smoking; add half of the tomatoes and the salt. Cook, tossing occasionally, until tomatoes start to blister and collapse, about 3 minutes. Add remaining tomatoes; cook, tossing once, 2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Push tomatoes to one side of pan; add garlic. Cook until fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir garlic and tomatoes together gently; cook, stirring occasionally and gently pressing tomatoes to release juices, until all tomatoes have collapsed and sauce is juicy and thick, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
    4. 4
      Add pasta to boiling water; cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, gently reheat sauce.
    5. 5
      Drain pasta; place in serving bowl. Add sauce and basil; toss. Add 3/4 cup of the cheese; toss. Add remaining ¾ cup cheese; toss.
    6. 6
      Season with pepper.

      I wish I could give this recipe more than 5 stars! I had never made a sauce from cherry tomatoes but believe me I certainly will be from now on! The sweetness of the tomatoes gave this sauce the perfect flavour, balanced beautifully with the basil. Thanks for a real treat of a recipe!
