Angel Hair Pomodoro

8 oz./225 g angel hair pasta
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 green onions
2 garlic cloves, peeled
8 oz./225 g cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
1 tsp. coarse kosher salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Serves 4

Cook angel hair in Tupperware® Microwave Pasta Maker 8-10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain and set aside, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Mince garlic and green onions in Chop 'N Prep Chef. While pasta cooks, heat olive oil in a Chef Series 11"/28 cm Fry Pan over medium-high heat. Add green onions and garlic and cook 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add tomatoes and cook 2-4 minutes, or until the tomatoes are tender and begin to break down slightly. Add the pasta to the pan and toss with Parmesan cheese, basil, salt and pepper until well coated. Add reserved pasta water if the sauce seems too dry. Top with additional Parmesan cheese and basil, if desired. Serve immediately. Note: Since many of these pasta recipes require the addition of aromatic fresh basil, the Fresh Herb Planter System from Tupperware is a must-have to keep this essential Italian herb close at hand, adding fresh flavor while saving you money.
