Fresh Tomato Pasta Garlic Olive Oil Recipe

Roasted Cherry Tomato Pasta

Fresh cherry tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and seasonings are all roasted until deliciously tender and slightly charred. The mixture is tossed with pasta for a simple and incredibly flavorful meal in just minutes. Don’t let the simplicity of this recipe fool you, it’s not a super saucy heavy dish but the juices of the tomatoes create the most beautiful delicate sauce for this dish, reminiscent of the meals I ate in Italy.
