This quick-cooking pasta dish is a perfect option for summertime.

A touch of butter and Parmesan are all that’s needed to elevate this dish to simple, satisfying perfection.

In a large, high-sided pan (or pot), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot.

Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened.

While the tomatoes cook, using your hands, carefully separate the strands of the pasta. Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving ½ cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly.

Finish the pasta:
5 Finish the pasta:

Add the cooked pasta, butter and half the reserved pasta cooking water to the pan of cooked vegetables; season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring vigorously to coat the pasta, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. (If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining pasta cooking water to achieve your desired consistency.) Season with salt and pepper to taste.
