I feel like I’ve been cheating on life in the best possible way lately.
Dinner so easy it is almost embarrassing.
Except it’s not. It’s brilliant instead.
It is also gluten and dairy free if you choose it to be. Which I choose until I topped it with some pecorino – which means SHEEP in Italian – which means I can eat it! But you don’t have to.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner, it’s what I’ve been eating the last two weeks. Because soon the tomatoes will be gone until next summer.
Last of the Season Roasted Cherry Tomatoes with Brown Rice Pasta
Cherry tomatoes from the farmer’s market – giant bag or several baskets
Whatever else you like spice wise with tomatoes
Foil lined rimmed cookie sheet
Super hot oven
Brown rice pasta – I used a whole bag because that’s how we roll around here. We LOVE leftovers.
What to do:
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Cook the pasta according to directions on the package.
While pasta water boils and/or pasta cooks, wash the tomatoes and put on the foil lined cookie sheet.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Shake on spices.
Put in oven until tomatoes are bursting open and some are charred.
Try to keep the oven door closed even though it smells divine in your house.
Remove from oven and scrape all the deliciousness from the cookie sheet and mix into the cooked pasta.
Drizzle in more olive oil if you want.
Top with your favorite cheese (or NOT).
Ready to give it a go? I’d love to hear what you think.
