Pasta is one of my favorite staples, and this recipe has a great fresh taste. Pair this dish with your favorite grilled chicken recipe for a simple low-fat meal. The drying of the tomatoes helps to intensify the flavor by removing some of the water. Kick up the heat a little and add some crushed red-pepper flakes. From Prevention's Eat Up, Slim Down

Nice, light pasta dish, perfect for a hot day! I didn't have plum tomatoes, so I used some Campari tomatoes instead. I forgot to set the timer while baking the tomatoes, so they came out a bit softer than I wanted, but it all worked out fine in the end (the tomatoes just became a bit saucy when mixed with everything else). I'll definitely be adding this to my "take to work for dinner" recipe rotation, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2012
- 8 plum tomatoes, cut in half
