Halloumi Pasta

Halloumi Pasta

…with Brown Butter and Burst Tomatoes.

This Halloumi Pasta is so easy that I felt a little silly even writing out the recipe. But I had to. I had to share it for two reasons…

First, so that you would know about it because you MUST make this. Like right now. You will 100% not regret it. I want to eat it every day and I’m pretty sure you will too.

Second, so I remember what I did because I am notorious for making something, obsessing over it and then forgetting about it, so if I don’t write it down I’ll forget it completely and be so sad that I can’t have it the same way again.

You will not believe how easy this dish it. It’s literally a 15 minute recipe. You can get pretty much all the elements ready while the pasta cooks and then you just throw it all together and tuck in.

I highly recommend making this on a night when you’re prepared to spend less time in the kitchen and more time on the couch, with a bowl and a fork and lots of trashy TV to watch. Just a thought.

Anything Special You Need to Know?

*I could go into detail in this recipe about how to brown butter, but I figure if you’re here you probably have access to our mutual friend Google and can probably figure that one out pretty easily. Here, I’ll even help direct you.

*You have two options for preparing the tomatoes in this recipe. My usual go-to is to throw them in the oven at 450 for 10 minutes. Super easy. You can also do them in a hot pan on the stove even faster than that, but it’s definitely much more splattery (?) and I get annoyed when I have to clean my stovetop unnecessarily.

  • Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet. Toss with a drizzle of olive oil and S&P. Roast at 450 for 10 minutes.*
  • Reserve about a cup of pasta water before draining.
  • Toss the cooked pasta with the browned butter and enough pasta cooking water to make a sauce.

*Alternatively you can cook the tomatoes in a hot skillet until they “burst” and soften… about 5 minutes.
