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.
