With the exception of three things: salsa, grape tomatoes and roasted tomatoes.
So the combination of grape tomatoes and a little roasting action in the oven is pure bliss in my book.
So stay tuned for an incredible summer pasta recipe coming your way!
Roasted Grape Tomatoes
Adapted from Food Network
10 oz. pkg. grape tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise
2 tsp. garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium bowl add the grape tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Stir lightly to combine.
2. In a 9x13-inch glass baking dish, spread the tomatoes into 1 even layer. Roast for 20 minutes and then stir. Return to the oven and cook for 5-10 more minutes until the tomatoes have begun to shrivel and the liquid in the dish has thickened. Serve hot.
