Garlicky Pasta with Tomatoes and Parmesan

This is a quick meal that I throw together sometimes for lunch – cook pasta, drain and return to the pan. Scoot the pasta aside and sauté a few cloves of chopped garlic in oil in the pan, add some halved cherry or grape tomatoes, and let it cook until it’s fragrant and the tomatoes begin to soften. Stir in freshly grated Parmesan cheese and season with salt & pepper. Top with a little more cheese. This is a great dish to use those fancy topper oils at the end for a nice finish, too.

    garlicky everything is good. I will cut the parmesan ( intolerant)..but the romaine tomatoes and garlic sounds divine…with a glass of wine…ah!!

    My husband is lactose intolerant, but he’s able to eat some of the harder cheeses. Sometimes I make meals that he’ll eat with a couple of Lactaid pills, but I generally try to keep the dairy use to a minimum for him. This one was all for me though 🙂
