Penne with Cherry Tomatoes


  • 1 lb cherry tomatoes

  • 2 Tbs olive oil

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 8 oz whole wheat penne pasta

  • 2 Tbs pesto (optional)

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Salting the tomatoes beforehand lends this pasta a rich flavor that has less salt than if you add it at the table.


  • Cut the tomatoes into halves and put them in a glass or stainless steel bowl. Add the olive oil and 1 teaspoon of salt. Toss, cover, and leave at room temperature for several hours or overnight, tossing once or twice.
  • When you’re ready to eat, gently stir the pesto into the tomatoes, which will be juicy.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the penne and cook according to the package directions. Drain and return the hot pasta to the pan along with the tomato-pesto mixture and all the juice; toss.
  • Season with freshly ground pepper and serve hot, at room temperature, or cold.
