  1. I've made baked pasta before but never where I've roasted the tomatoes first. It really enhances the flavor. This is a super easy way to get some creamy comfort food on the table fast. I made it exactly as the recipe states and it was tasty but a little tame for us. I'll be adding more spice, some garlic, and maybe some red pepper flakes to spice it up a little. Thanks for posting.

<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
