White wine Tomato basil sauce


  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 packet of cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup fresh basil, finely chopped

Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add crushed red pepper flakes and garlic and sauté for 1 minute, or until garlic is fragrant. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they’re soft and blistering, but still hold their shape, 9 to 12 minutes. Add in the white wine, stir, and allow the mixture to come to a gentle simmer. Stir in the basil, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, sugar, and pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer the sauce into a bowl and set aside until needed.
