Pasta with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes
Slow-roasting tomatoes can take hours. We wanted the same deep flavors in a fraction of the time.
Why This Recipe Works
Slow-roasted tomatoes offer a sweet depth of flavor to pasta, but we didn’t want to spend 2 hours waiting for the oven to work its magic for our Pasta with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes. By choosing cherry tomatoes instead of bigger varieties and turning up the oven to 500 degrees, we are able to achieve the same richness of flavor in just 20 minutes. Nestling sliced garlic cloves into the tomatoes lets us soften their edges without burning them. Tossed with pasta, basil, and Parmesan, the dish delivers deep flavor—faster.
