Loved this! I roasted my ivory cherry tomatoes and 2 tiny heads of garlic with the top chopped off in large fry pan in the oven. The garlic paste made the pasta creamy without adding calories. I used cilantro instead of parsley so the whole thing pretty much came out of my garden. A great use of produce...and easy too.

Absolutely wonderful! I used 4 chopped garlic cloves rather than messing with the 5 unpeeled cloves, and I substituted a different type of pasta. I will definitely make this again.
