Roasted Tomato Pasta Recipe

Monday, August 13, 2012

Roasted Tomato Pasta a perfect use for the over abundance of cherry tomatoes growing in the yard this time of year and a fresh light spin for a Meatless Monday night dinner.  The easy light fresh sauce combined with the pop in your mouth roasted tomatoes creates a wonderful easy one pan dinner. We enjoyed this with a nice glass of organic Pinot Grigio and homemade Easy Chessy Garlic and Herb Bread  Sticks

Toss cherry tomatoes with olive oil and sea salt.
 Toss tomatoes to coat.. Try to ignore my freaky veiny hand and concentrate on the tomatoes.  Roast tomatoes in a 450 degree oven for 18-20 minutes until tomatoes start to burst and brown.
Chop 1/2 a whole onion and  8 cloves garlic.
Saute onions, garlic, oregano, thyme and rosemary in the butter and olive oil. When onion is softened add white wine and simmer for about 3 minutes to reduce. Add pasta water.
Add pasta, roasted tomatoes, fresh ground pepper and fresh basil. Toss until fully combined. Garnish with fresh parmesan cheese.
