Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes
It was GREAT! All I did was add a quick pesto sauce to the pasta right before I mixed in the roasted tomatoes (get it..."tomesto"...HA). You could add as much or as little pesto as you would like, I kept it light so I didn't overpower the roasted tomatoes, but next time I will probably put in more. I also used whole wheat spaghetti. Ahhh-mazing!
Here is my version of a quick pesto.
You will need:
- 1 packed cup of basil
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 Tbsp of parmesan or romano cheese
- 1/2 cup of extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 Tbsp of lemon juice
- 1/4 cup of pine nuts (can also use walnuts)
- Salt and pepper to taste
