Sprouted Grain Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes and Basil

Last night we tried a new type of pasta (see picture above). It is a sprouted grain pasta that is all whole grains, full of protein, organic and high in fiber. The ingredients are lentils, millet, spelt, soybeans, barley and whole grain wheat. It definitely doesn't taste like pasta but I still thought it had a really good texture and was very tasty. I found it at Wegman's in the organic section.

1 package Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Pasta
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 handful fresh basil, torn into pieces

Cook pasta according to directions and drain. Slice tomatoes in half and set aside. In a small saute pan, heat 1/4 cup olive oil and 3 tbsp butter with minced garlic over medium hight heat until garlic is golden. Once pasta is cooked, place in a large bowl and pour garlic mixture over the pasta. Stir in tomatoes and mix well. Top with basil and serve with parmesan cheese.
