I am so, so in love with this simple, delicious pasta. And I am so excited to share the recipe with you guys today! First of all, it’s fresh, homemade, brown butter tomato sauce. You had me at brown butter. But second of all, it’s so easy. Like five-ingredient, done in 10 minutes easy. I whipped this up for us after we had been painting the office / scrapbook room all day and we were starving, and I didn’t feel like cooking, and I needed something super quick and easy to make. It’s one of those “I don’t feel like making dinner!” dinners, but it totally knocks your socks off. It is definitely going into our dinner rotation! With fresh tomatoes and basil, it’s the perfect summer meal. But it will also warm you right up on chilly nights as well! It’s fresh, filling, decadent, and divine. It’s everything I want in a pure, simple pasta. And just look how easy it is to make! :)

After the seven minutes were up, my tomatoes were soft and perfect, but they were still mostly whole. I wanted them to be a little more saucy, so I gave them each a little mash with the back of my spatula. We loved it like this! But you could certainly leave them whole if you prefer.

Next add in the chopped basil, salt, and pepper and stir to combine.

    Not only is this FABULOUS, but easy. Been an easy go-to when we want to have something fancy and yummy, but not spend a lot of time in the kitchen!! Thanks!

    I had to make this today and I’m so glad I did, it’s going into my “half-hour great recipes” file. Had no cherry tomatoes so chunked up whole ones, and I browned the butter first because of the way my stovetop works. Otherwise no changes (except that the cheese-filled ravioli were tortellini in my case) and suffice it to say, it was heavenly.

    I made this sauce tonight. I added onion, garlic and white wine and it was delicious! I served it with a chicken & mozerella sausage. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I made this sauce tonight for some leftover cheese tortellini we had in the fridge, and it is AMAZING. So easy and so good. I added some fresh garlic to kick it up a notch and it was a perfect addition. I’m not really much of a cook, so if I can make this and it tastes good, anyone can make it!

    We had a little sauce leftover, so we put it on Boudin Sourdough Crisps from Costco, sort of like a saucy bruschetta, and that tasted amazing too!! It was so good we didn’t want to stop eating it LOL Thank you so much for posting this recipe, it’s a permanent addition in our house :)
