This deceptively simple dish is packed with flavor and color.


  • 6 lb. Barilla® Angel Hair
  • 1 1/2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 cloves peeled, halved garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. chili flakes
  • 9 lb. halved cherry tomatoes
  • 3 qt. stock
  • 30 leaves julienned fresh basil
  • As needed salt
  • 3/4 cup grated Romano cheese


Step 1

Cook the Barilla® pasta for half the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking.

Step 2

Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

Step 3

For each serving, to order: Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a skillet. Add 1/2 clove garlic and 1/4 tsp. chili flakes. Toss a couple of times, then add 1 cup cherry tomatoes, 1/2 cup stock or pasta water, and about 1 Tbsp. basil. Simmer to soften the tomatoes; season with salt. Discard the garlic.

Step 4

Reheat 2 cups angel hair in boiling water for 40 to 60 seconds. Drain and toss with the sauce. Plate and garnish with 2 Tbsp. Romano.
