Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Choose a shallow baking dish that will hold tomatoes in a single layer.
  3. Cover bottom of the dish with the olive oil.
  4. Cut tomatoes. If using round tomatoes, cut into quarters; if using roma tomatoes, in halves.

  6. Combine the remaining ingredients except pasta, and sprinkle over the tomatoes.

  8. While the tomatoes are baking, cook the pasta according to package directions and drain.
