Ingredients

  • Balsamic reduction:
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Pasta:
  • 10 ounces approximately angel hair pasta, or whatever your favorite pasta is
  • 2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil
  • 1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese

Instructions

  • First, start your balsamic reduction by combining balsamic vinegar and sugar in small pot over medium low heat.
  • Let cook until reduced for 20-25 minutes. It will be thickened and syrupy when finished.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Bring pot of water to boiling and cook pasta according to package.
  • While water is heating up and oven is preheating, combine tomatos, olive oil, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, garlic, and salt. Toss to combine.
  • Place on baking sheet (I lined mine with aluminum foil), and roast in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, until tomatoes start to soften and break down.
  • Once tomatoes and pasta are cooked, toss them together, along with the remaining 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and basil.
  • Add goat cheese and toss gently.
  • Finish off with balsamic reduction drizzle.
