I love this recipe because it's fairly quick, and surprisingly tasty. I don't remember where I found it, but it goes over very well with my family.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Choose a shallow baking dish that will hold tomatoes in a single layer.
  3. Cover bottom of the dish with the olive oil.
  4. Cut tomatoes. If using round tomatoes, cut into quarters; if using roma tomatoes, in halves.
  5. Dip the cut surface of each tomato piece in the olive oil, then place in the pan cut-side up.
  6. Combine the remaining ingredients except pasta, and sprinkle over the tomatoes.
  7. Bake 40 minutes. Tomatoes should be very soft when removed from the oven.
  8. While the tomatoes are baking, cook the pasta according to package directions and drain.
  9. Place pasta in bowl and pour baked tomatoes and oil over.
  10. Toss well to break up the tomatoes.
  11. Serve with extra cheese if desired, or fresh parsley for garnish.

We really enjoyed this. My 4 tomatoes were very large, so I used 2 additional cloves of garlic. The finished dish needed a bit more salt. I served this over 3/4 lb. of angel hair pasta. The flavor was subtle but had nice depth and was warm and comforting. I tried to reduce the amount of olive oil used, but ended up needing all of it to keep the tomatoes moist while roasting. This made a delicious dinner enjoyed by all 5 of us.
