What is your favorite pass time when you are waiting in the doctor’s office? Mine is undoubtedly reading recipe section of magazines. Sometimes I write them down, sometimes just read them and want to make them once I come back home. But then, every time, I forget about them. Recently on one of such occasions, I read this very simple pasta recipe. I have forgotten the exact recipe, but remembered the gist of it. So I created this one.
Recently we have started buying vegetables at a farmer’s market here. They are so much tastier and very fresh. Almost always I get attracted to cherry tomatoes. There is something great about these cute little beauties. Usually, I don’t know what I will be making with them. But this time, I clearly knew.
First day, I made this sauce of cherry tomatoes and served with angel hair pasta. Next day, made a sandwich with my jeera bread. I don’t have any measurements, as I eye-balled everything. The roasted tomatoes were so tasty.
Next on my list is Nupur’s pasta salad. Check out.
Roasted cherry tomato sauce:
Fresh basil leaves finely chopped
Red chilli flakes
Finely chopped garlic
Preheat the oven at 450F for about 10mins.
In a baking dish, spread cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle generous amount of olive oil, garlic, basil, chilli flakes and salt.
Bake for about 15-20 mins or till the tomatoes burst open.
Heat oil in a skillet and fry onions on a medium flame. Take care not to brown them. They should be cooked.
Now add the roasted cherry tomatoes and mix well. The sauce is ready.
Cook pasta according to packet instructions. Add the sauce. Mix well. Sprinkle some chopped fresh basil leaves and handful of Parmesan cheese. Serve hot.
Cut the bread horizontally. Apply butter and toast them till it is crispy. Now spread the thick sauce and some fresh chopped basil. You can also spread mozerrella cheese like this(I did not add cheese). Serve hot.
