Garlicky Tomato Pasta – an excellent amalgamation of three popular Italian ingredients: tomatoes, garlic, and olive oil. Moreover, this simple recipe can be prepared effortlessly in your air fryer. This recipe will instantly become your absolute favourite when you make it The Culinary Cartel way.
In addition to being delicious, this pasta dish comes together in a snap. It’s a quick air fryer, hands off, meal that cooks in just under 40 minutes– perfect for when you need to get an effortless dinner on the table that the whole family will love!
Tomatoes are the spotlight of this dish, so for the best flavour, make sure they’re the highest quality possible. The tomatoes should be crimson, firm and heavy, with no soft spots and thin skin. You can tell if the skin is thin by running your fingers over the surface—it should feel delicate and smooth. Cherry tomatoes are a good option as well.
For this recipe, we are using penne pasta due to its beautiful ridges that cling to all the goodness of that creamy sauce. You can also use any other ridged short pasta or spaghetti if you wish.
