I decided to have a go at Presto Pasta Night for the first time since beginning this blog o’ mine. While I really wanted to make a grilled tomato pasta, I opted for a roasted tomato one instead due to the fact that I don’t actually own a grill. A girl can dream! The pasta turned out beautiful and tasted fresh to boot! As K said, “Are you making that fresh
Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pasta (If you think of a better name, drop me a comment)
1 basket of grape tomatoes halved
½ lb pasta (your choice)
3 T. basil chopped
1 head of garlic
Salt & Pepper
Lay the halved tomatoes on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Cut the bottom 1/3rd off the head of garlic and place cut-side up on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast the tomatoes and garlic at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.
Boil and drain the pasta.
Lightly coat the pasta in olive oil. Stir in chopped basil and roasted tomatoes. Squeeze the garlic out of the clove skins and into the pasta. Toss and top with parm.
