It was scorching hot yesterday. And when it's that hot the last thing I want to do is run the oven. And that's why recipes like this tomato sauce is great. The pasta cooks in about 10 minutes, then you brown the garlic in a pan with olive oil, and add the rest of the ingredients and stir.
The most tedious part of it is quartering 5 cups of cherry tomatoes.
I really liked this meal, but the boyfriend wasn't as thrilled. I thought it was fresh and light. Perfect for such a hot day. But the boyfriend said it lacked flavor. I personally don't feel a fresh tomato sauce should have a lot going on. You should be tasting the tomatoes -- not hiding them with herbs and spices.
The recipe includes a recipe for whole wheat pasta, it's not Core and looks pretty time consuming so I skipped it. Instead, I made regular 100% whole wheat pasta from a box. Not as fancy, but it was good enough for a weeknight.
