    Liza at's Note:

    Very simple, very yummy. This is my favorite kind of cooking...just a few quality ingredients that really compliment each other. Adapted from Paola di Mauro, but given to me by my dad who is a sophisticated foodie who also appreciates simple tastes.

    6. 6
      Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to boil.

      Season with enough sea salt so that water is pretty salty.

      Scoop out a cup of the pasta water and reserve.

      Drain pasta and toss right into casserole and fold pasta into tomato mixture, adding 2-3 Tablespoons more olive oil, to coat.

      Oh, Liza...this is fabulous!! Very few ingredients, simple to prepare, great flavor. I added a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar - not because it was needed, but because I like balsamic vinegar with everything! This one is going in the favorites file. Thanks for sharing.

      We enjoyed this pasta dish a lot. I used two pints of cherry tomatoes and a romano cheese blend for roasting. Also had italian bread crumbs on hand and kosher salt instead of sea salt. Tossed the penne and roasted tomatoes together and added freshly grated parmesan before serving. Didnt need to add any pasta water as it came together very nicely. Liza thank you for posting your recipe! Made and reviewed for Kathy and Liza's Cookathon 2008 in the Photo Forum.
