DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Line bottom of a casserole dish with tomato halves in a single layer.
  • Pour oil on top, season with salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle cheese and breadcrumbs on top.
  • Bake until tomatoes have wilted, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to boil.
  • Season with enough sea salt so that water is pretty salty.
  • When tomatoes are just about done, add penne to water and cook until al dente.
  • 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.
  • Taste, adjust seasoning, if it is dry, add some of the pasta water.
  • Serve, passing more grated cheese at the table.
  • I have added chopped fresh basil when tossing the pasta and really love the flavor it brings.
