It’s always good now and again to just have a big bowl of starchy, silky and salty pasta. Browning the butter just takes things a step further and gives this pasta dish a nutty flavour. You can switch the fettuccine for linguine or tagliatelle if you like. You can use coloured tomatoes here if you like to add a pop of colour to the dish.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions or until al dente.
While the pasta is cooking add the butter to a large sauté pan and let it melt. Once the butter is a deep brown and smells nutty, add the garlic along with the tomatoes and thyme, simmer for 3-4 minutes or until tomatoes have cooked down a bit and created a sauce. Simmer until slightly thickened.
When cooked, transfer the pasta to the sauce along with a little of the cooking liquid and half the pecorino. Toss until all the flavours marry together. Season to taste and then serve in wide bowls with the basil leaves and the remaining pecorino.
