Roasted Tomatoes and Garlic Pasta

My neighbor gave me a box full of tomatoes.

There are only two of us, so I needed to do something with them – now. I made some tomato sauce (come back on Saturday for the recipe) and this delicious pasta.

It’s so easy and bursting with flavor!

Here’s How to Do it:

Preheat the oven to 400° –

Remove the skin from the garlic cloves, but do not cut or crush them.

Lay them on a baking sheet.

Wash and dry the tomatoes.

Cut them into pieces (I did six to eight per tomato) and lay them around the garlic.

Drizzle both with olive oil and sprinkle heavily with fresh cracked pepper (about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon) and sea salt.

Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes. The tomatoes will start to look a little burned and the garlic will be soft and fragrant.

Remove from the oven and turn the oven off. Add the chopped basil and return to the oven. The residual heat will cook the basil with the tomatoes.

While it’s baking cook or heat the pasta.

Gently mash the garlic cloves and add the entire try to the pasta.

Add about 2/3 of the parmesan cheese and gently stir.

Garnish with the remaining cheese and some torn basil leaves.
