Thin Spaghetti with Grape Tomatoes & Basil

It's been a while, I know.  But I'm back with another yummy Meatless Monday meal!  Not only is it vegetarian, but it can be vegan too!  We've been trying to eliminate dairy in our household, because of potential allergies, oooo fun!  So, I have had to re-evaluate all of my normal go to dinner recipes, thank goodness this one was an easy fix!  I hope you enjoy this easy meal as much as the family and I did!

Thin Spaghetti with Grape Tomatoes & Basil
serves 6-8, time: 20 min

1 Box Thin Spaghetti (I used organic whole wheat)
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Clove Garlic, chopped
4 Cups Grape Tomatoes, halved
Kosher Salt & Cracked pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp Fresh Basil, ribbon-ed
1/2 Cup Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese (optional, I omitted)

Cook pasta according to package directions.  While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil and garlic in a large skillet, until garlic turns a golden color.  Add grape tomatoes, salt & pepper.  Cook for 2 min.  Drain pasta (reserve cooking water), then add to tomato mixture.  Toss in basil and a ladle of pasta water, over medium heat for 1 min.  Serve, top with Parmesan cheese if you would like, and enjoy!!
