Caprese Spaghetti


¾ box (¾ pound) spaghetti
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
¼ cup olive oil
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ pound fresh mozzarella, cut into small cubes
8 large basil leaves, torn


1. In a large pot of salted water, cook the spaghetti and then drain and set aside.

2. In a separate pot warm the garlic and olive oil until the garlic is just turning golden brown. Then stir in the tomatoes and salt and toss them with the oil. Stew them for about 15 minutes, or until they get soft and just start to collapse.

3. Stir the tomatoes and oil into the spaghetti, then toss in the mozzarella and basil leaves. Serve warm!
