step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
step 2
Pour half of the Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) into a 13x9-inch baking dish and spread evenly along the bottoms and sides with your fingers or a pastry brush.
step 3
Wash Cherry Tomatoes (3 cups) and pat dry. Slice each tomato in half and place them in the baking dish, skin-side down, to form a single layer in the baking dish. Fit in as many tomatoes as you can.

step 6
Once the baking dish is in the oven, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add Farfalle Pasta (1 lb) and cook to al denté.
step 7
Once you remove the dish, use the back of a large spoon to stir the tomatoes, squishing them to release their juices. Pour the drained pasta into the baking dish and stir well.
step 8
For the Fresh Basil Leaves (6), stack the leaves together and roll up lengthwise. Then, chop the roll in pieces about 1/8″ wide. Fluff the basil gently with your finger tips and sprinkle over the pasta and tomatoes.
step 9
Serve with additional parmesan cheese as a garnish. This dish also makes fantastic leftovers!
