- 1 pound of chunky pasta
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 shallot, finely sliced
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 24 ounces (2 pints) cherry tomatoes
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon oregano
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- ⅓ cup shredded parmesan
- ¼ cup chopped basil
- Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on the stovetop. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
- Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the olive oil and allow it to get very hot.
