Sweet cherry tomatoes are tossed with olive oil, garlic, and balsamic vinegar before hitting the oven. This vibrant roasted cherry tomato pasta is quick, easy, and will quickly become a family favorite!
Serves: 4
  • 4 Cups Cherry Tomatoes
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, finely minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Light Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes, optional
  • 1 12 oz. Box Gluten Free Spaghetti*
  • 1 Cup Crumbled Ricotta Silata Cheese*
  • ½ Cup Thinly Sliced Fresh Basil
  • Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, for drizzling
  1. Preheat the oven to 400º.
  2. Place the cherry tomatoes in a 9x13 inch baking dish and top with garlic, balsamic, and olive oil. Season the mix with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Roast the cherry tomatoes for 15-20 minutes, or until they just start to burst.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Salt the water generously and add in the pasta. Give it a good stir to prevent sticking and cook the pasta 1 minute less than the package instructions. Reserve some pasta water before draining and rinsing the pasta. (Only rinse it if you’re using gluten-free!)*
  4. Toss the pasta right in the pan with roasted cherry tomato sauce, adding pasta water if you need more moisture. Add in the cheese and basil while tossing.
  5. Serve the pasta with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.
Recipe Notes

*My favorite gluten-free spaghetti brand is Barilla. If you’re not gluten-free, simply use traditional pasta which is mostly available in 16oz. boxes vs. the 12oz. that most gluten free comes in. This recipe works just fine with a full pound - just add some extra pasta water if needed to make it saucier!


*Ricotta Silata cheese is a dry crumbly cheese that is pretty mild, but has a salty bite. If you can’t find it, you can use Queso Fresco or Cojita cheese, which I find to be extremely similar in taste and texture!


*I always rinse gluten-free pasta as it prevents it from being too sticky and starchy. Omit the rinsing if you’re using traditional pasta!
