As mentioned above, this recipe lends itself to adding different on-hand vegetables. I used Campari tomatoes sliced in half, yellow & zucchini squash as well as asparagus. I also used Mushroom-Sage flavored Olive Oil by Branch & Vine and served over Angel-Hair pasta. My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. As he said, "It's a Keeper!"
Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes and Garlic
Principles 13 & 20: Height-of-summer tomatoes burst with flavor and need little embellishment to create a spectacular dish. Churning the oil into boiling liquid emulsifies the mixture, yielding a creamy sauce that coats.
