Some of my favorite meals aren’t planned at all. I came home from work today and didn’t have any plan for dinner. I opened the fridge and found grape tomatoes, half a red onion, and an open bottle of white wine. Fifteen minutes later, this dish was on the table. It’s such a good feeling when your leftovers come together beautifully!
Pasta with White Wine & Fresh Tomatoes
Prepare one serving of pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. When the oil is warm, add ¼ cup diced red onion. Saute for about 2 minutes then add 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise. Cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Add ½ cup white wine and simmer. When the pasta is done, add it to the white wine and tomatoes with a pinch of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook for another 2 minutes, and serve warm.
