This Roasted Cherry Tomatoes Pasta is loaded with slow-cooked juicy tomatoes, garlic, onions, and fresh aromatic Italian herbs. So luscious, tangy, and insanely delicious.



  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1½ tbsp fresh Italian herbs (rosemary, thyme, and oregano), finely chopped
  • 78 garlic cloves
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 350 gm or 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp red chill flakes
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder, freshly ground
  • 200 gm spaghetti pasta
  • Water as needed to boil pasta


  1. In a pan, add olive oil on medium heat. Add garlic, chopped onions, fresh herbs, and cherry tomatoes. Meanwhile, cook/boil spaghetti pasta according to the package instructions. When done, drain and run it under cold water to avoid sticking.
  2. Cover the pan with a lid and lower the heat to low. Lowering the heat is very important here. Let it cook like this for 10 minutes.
  3. Then, with the help of either a masher or a big spoon, mash the garlic and cherry tomatoes into a very chunky paste. Add tomato paste, salt, red chilli flakes and black pepper powder. Cook this sauce down on medium-low heat for another 10 minutes. Keep stirring so that the sauce doesn’t burn or stick at the bottom of the pan.
  4. Add cooked/boiled spaghetti pasta to this paste and mix well so that the sauce is well coated on the spaghetti.
