Author GFF Staff


  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 clove garlic, finely grated or crushed
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 ounces gluten-free capellini pasta (we like Jovial brand)


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, basil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a few grinds of pepper. Let marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Cook the pasta as directed on the package. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking water. Return the pasta to the pot, add the tomato marinade and reserved water, and briefly toss, with the heat on medium-high, to evenly coat and warm. Divide the pasta between two dinner plates, garnish with basil and pepper, and serve.
