Summer Spaghetti (Vegan, Soy Free)

Summer Spaghetti


  • 1 box spaghetti
  • 1/3 cup good olive oil
  • 8-10 cloves garlic, sliced very thin
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 bunch fresh basil, torn roughly
  • salt and pepper, to taste

preparation steps:

1. prepare pasta according to instructions on box

2. place olive oil in a small sauce pan on medium-low heat-when oil is hot add crushed red pepper flakes, a tiny pinch of salt, and sliced garlic-heat garlic until it just begins to sizzle and oil is infused with garlic and peppers then remove from heat and set aside-do not overcook garlic as it will become bitter

3. place cherry tomatoes, salt and pepper, garlic olive oil, and basil in a deep bowl

4. when pasta is al dente, remove from water with tongs, directly into bowl of tomatoes, garlic oil and basil (a little of the cooking water will cling to the pasta which will help the garlic oil and tomatoes to cling to the pasta)

5. toss well and serve hot
