Linguine with Burst Tomatoes and Chiles


Linguine with Burst Tomatoes and Chiles recipe

Makes 4 servings

The key to this sauce is a creamy emulsion of the oil, cheese, and pasta water. Toss and stir—and stir and toss—adding liquid freely, until it comes together.


  • 2 1/4″-thick slices crusty bread, well-toasted, broken into pieces
  • 12 ounces linguine
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped drained oil-packed Calabrian chiles
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more
  • 1 pound small tomatoes
  • 1 ounce Pecorino, finely grated (about 1/2 cup)
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Pulse toast in a food processor to fine crumbs; set aside.

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente; drain, reserving 1 1/2 cups pasta cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, heat chiles and 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat until sizzling, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, increase heat to medium-high, and cook, turning tomatoes occasionally, until blistered in spots, about 3 minutes. Continue to cook, lightly crushing tomatoes, until beginning to break down, about 3 minutes.

Add pasta, 1 cup pasta cooking liquid, and 1/4 cup Pecorino to skillet and cook, tossing and adding more liquid as needed, until sauce coats pasta, about 2 minutes.

Serve pasta seasoned with salt and pepper and topped with remaining Pecorino and reserved breadcrumbs.



(March 20 – April 18):

At what point will you realize that the two warring parties are fighting over you? It’s not every day when you get to be the object of desire. Enjoy it.


(April 19 – May 19):

Keep opinions to yourself. You know you’re just venting frustrations, but people are sensitive now and could take it the wrong way.


(May 20 – June 20):

Don’t come to a loved one’s rescue until you get the entire story first. He’s not quite the hapless victim he paints himself out to be.


(June 21 – July 21):

Ignore the ultimatums and posturing because nobody’s going anywhere. The other party’s position is no better than yours so you’ll have to work together.


(July 22 – Aug. 21):

Go ahead and flirt with a prospective interest. You’re not really serious . . . but your significant other or boss doesn’t need to know that.


(Aug. 22 – Sept. 21):

You have second thoughts about whether you can go the distance, but give it a try. Even if things stumble at the starting gate, you’ll regain your footing.


(Sept. 22 – Oct. 22):

Today’s dramatic breakthrough shows that you’re capable of more than you know. It’s time to raise your sights.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

Fuses are short, tempers explosive, and everyone wears their hearts on their sleeves. Nevertheless it can still be very romantic.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Your boss is right to push you. It’s the reason why you’ll soon see the future as an open possibility instead of a foregone conclusion.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 18):

At first you felt insulted being handed something that a rival just turned down, but does it really matter? It’s still an amazing opportunity.


(Jan. 19 – Feb. 17):

You have the upper hand in a conflict, so be nice. Your magnanimity persuades losing parties to yield without a fight.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

A decision is out of your hands. Instead of worrying about it, put your trust in the Universe. You won’t be disappointed.

Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon Working Out Divorce Announcement (Report)


Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon reportedly met up in New York Tuesday night to hammer out the details of announcing their split to the public.

According to E! News, Mariah summoned Nick to her NYC apartment because she’s “done taking a passive role” in their marital drama. “She asked Nick to come over to the apartment yesterday to talk — that’s why he was there.”

“She told him there would be one announcement about the divorce and it was going to come from her team,” the source reveals. “Nick said he was fine with this. He knows he really upset her by speaking out of turn last week and has apologized for it.”

“She told him she needed to get out of town and she was taking the kids with her. Nick was fine with it,” the E! insider reveals. “The reports about him being concerned about the welfare of the kids aren’t true. If he was worried, the kids wouldn’t be with her, period. He thinks she’s a good mom.”

As previously reported, Nick recently revealed to The Insider, “There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months. My main focus is my kids.”

BET Suspends Producer Responsible for Blue Ivy Hair Joke

The Associated Press is reporting that the BET producer behind the Blue Ivy joke read on air Monday by Karrueche Tran has been suspended.

A source at BET, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to discuss the matter publicly, said the producer was suspended for giving a pass to the joke about Beyonce and Jay Z’s 2-year-old daughter.

As previously reported, Tran was a guest host on “106 & Park” when she was asked to read from a script of jokes speculating what Blue Ivy was thinking while watching her mother perform at the VMAs. One of the jokes was: “‘I really did wake up like this because my parents never combed my hair.”

Stephen Hill, BET’s president of music programming and specials, publicly apologized on Twitter.

“Last night on 106 & Park there was a stupid, unthoughtful joke made about a young child,” Hill tweeted.

Hill also said the network privately apologized to Beyonce and Jay Z.

Tran, who has dated singer Chris Brown on and off, tweeted Tuesday that she did not write the joke. She wrote: “Now y’all know I LOVE me some Beyonce and Blue Ivy!”

Hill also tweeted that it was not Tran’s fault.

“We also apologize to her for putting her in that position,” he wrote.
