  • Summary

    Keep a careful eye on the garlic as it cooks in the oil and lower the heat if it begins to brown, otherwise the garlic will taste bitter and allow at least 30 minutes for the tomatoes to marinate in the garlic infused oil for maximum flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 pounds cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
    • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, torn or thinly sliced
    • 4 tablespoons capers
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest, plus more for sprinkling
    • ¼ teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 1 pound pasta, cooked al dente (I used bucatini but any pasta will do)
    • 8 ounces mozzarella bocconcini balls, sliced in half
