- 1 dry pint Pure Flavor ® Oriana® Orange Grape Tomatoes, halved
- 1lb pasta (tube-style)
- 1 small lemon, thinly sliced into rounds
- 4 tbsp butter, divided
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes, crushed
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- Parmesan cheese, grated for garnish
Cook pasta as per package instructions until al dente.
Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water, then drain the pasta.
In a large skillet on medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add lemon slices, tomatoes, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lemons brown and tomatoes soften, 5–7 minutes.
Transfer the lemon slices to a plate and add remaining butter to the skillet. Once melted, add garlic and sauté with the tomatoes for 1 minute.
Carefully pour ¼ cup of the pasta water into the skillet. Once the mixture begins to simmer, fold in the drained pasta. While slowly stirring, sprinkle in parmesan and remaining pasta water.
Once the noodles are well coated, remove from heat, plate and garnish with additional parmesan cheese and a cooked lemon slice.
