Roasted Tomato Pasta

One of my favorite things about summertime is the fresh fruits and vegetables that come along with it. Green beans, corn on the cob, fresh tomatoes. It’s all delicious!

I love super sweet cherry tomatoes. They’re perfect for topping salads with, but my favorite way to eat them is out-of-hand, just like candy. But what happens when you buy too many tomatoes and they’ve been sitting around for a week or so? Or when they’re not quite in season and aren’t really all that flavorful?

That’s easy – make Roasted Tomatoes!

The really great thing about making Roasted Tomatoes is that you don’t need tomatoes that are at their peak in terms of freshness or flavor. This is because roasting enhances the flavor of tomatoes. It pulls out their natural sweetness and concentrates their tomato flavor.

Tips for Making Roasted Tomatoes

  • Use a really good-quality balsamic vinegar in this recipe because the flavor will concentrate as it cooks.

  • Don’t forget to stir the tomatoes a couple times during the cooking process. This helps make sure the garlic doesn’t burn.

    This recipe is absolutely delicious. I have served it to guests and they have all loved it. Even asked me for the recipe. I have also used the roasted tomatoes alone with burrata, and they were amazing together.
