    Very fresh, very simple. Recommend you check first before you add the 1/3c pasta water -- our cherry tomatoes released enough liquid. Grated a very small amount of Parmesan on top. Served with bitter greens salad & garlic ciabbatta sticks.

    Great simple recipe. I used whole wheat pasta and couldn't find ricotta salata cheese, so used parmigiano-reggiano instead. Another reader used goat cheese and I think I'll try that next time. Not "outstanding", but I'll certainly make it again and it's elegant enough to serve to guests.

    Great fast and easy recipe! My 14 month old DEVOURED it! Wouldn't change a thing. Throw together with a salad and garlic bread and you've got a winner meal.

    This was so simple and so delicous! I followed recipe pretty closely; my only change was using whole wheat spaghetti and grape tomotoes instead of cherry. The fresh basil really added a fresh and zesty taste. This is a really easy yet elegant recipe. Great flavor and truly gourmet. I would make this for company and yet it's simple enough for every day.

    This is absolutely delicious and so simple to make! I used 2 cups of grape tomatoes and 2 cups of cherry tomatoes, and goat cheese. So good! I will definitely make this again!

    I love roasted tomatoes, but the cherry tomatoes shed so much water when roasting that with the pasta water the dish had a watery taste and the ricotta-salata cheese wasn't bold enough to really contrast well with the tomatoes. I could definitely see trying this again with grape tomatoes, which might be a bit sweeter, and goat cheese or feta.

    This is a delicious and simple recipe. I couldn't find ricotta salata in our grocery store so I substituted goat cheese (which the whole family loves) and used whole wheat pasta. It turned out great!

    Used grape tomatoes and feta because that is what I had on hand. It was absolutely wonderful.

    My husband thought this was great, I thought it was fine, nothing special. I would probably make this again as it is an easy recipe for an everday sort of dinner, but would use a bolder cheese...the ricotta is too mild.

    Really simple to make and tasted great! I did use goat cheese instead of ricotta which I think made the dish more sophisticated...it sounds so fancy, roasted tomato and goat cheese pasta! The goat cheese melted into a nice creamy sauce so in every bite you get goat cheese. There can't ever be too much goat cheese.

    I chose this recipe becuse I had some ricotta and fresh basil to use up! My tomatoes were a little bit bigger than a cherry, but smaller than a roma, so I had to cook them a little bit longer. These were my changes: added 2 garlic minced to the tomatoes,,,forgot to add the olive oil at the end...added some red pepper flake and parmesan cheese. We quite enjoyed this simple, but flavourful meal! You have got to like the taste of ricotta before you would enjoy this meal! As I usually have the main ingredients in my kitchen, this is a recipe that I would definately go back to!

    Not worth the time and effort. I didn't throw it away, but I will not make it again.

    This was ok nothing to special. Could have added alittle more to it to spice it up.

    The olive oil was too strong tasting, we ended up tossing the entire meal and making something else :(

    This was completely tasteless. I was starving so I ate mine, but my boyfriend didn't even finish his and I had to throw it away.
