Good things to eat

Grape tomatoes

This dish makes me feel good.

Here we go.  Turn on the oven to 350 degrees.  Get out your trusty baking sheet with parchment paper.

Meanwhile, in a bowl toss a bunch of grape tomatoes.  They come in those boxes with the holes.  Rinse them right in that box.  Then in the bowl with them pop in a few cloves of garlic with the skin off.  In this case I put them in whole, but you could cut them down a bit if you like but it isn’t necessary.

Drizzle with some olive oil, bit of salt and pepper and then toss them all together and then pour out onto your baking sheet.

Bake them in the oven till they wilt up like raison.  This makes them very very sweet.

Then boil up a pot of your favorite pasta and then drain.

Back in the bowl that you tossed the tomatoes in, add some chopped spinach and the roasted tomatoes and the hot drained pasta.  Toss them quickly.  The heat from the tomatoes and the pasta will wilt down the spinach.

Then add a bit more olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice or balsamic vinegar and you are ready to go.

At this point you have a lovely Vegan dish.  You can sprinkle with some nice Parma cheese and you still have a nice Vegetarian dish.

But tonight, I used this as a side dish with a nice baked chicken breast and some lentil salad.

It is so good to have options!

  1. Oh, yum! I love a pasta salad. As in, I’d marry it if I could. Thanks for adding to my ever-growing to-do list…

  2. Looks delicious!

  3. […] So to start with roast off some grape or other small cute tomatoes  ( click here to see where we’ve done that before ). […]

  4. Reblogged this on what have we got here? and commented:

    I’ve been thinking, since I have had this blog for over a year now and how many of you have only joined us in the past few months, that I would start “RE-RUN WEDNESDAY” for awhile. When you first start writing your blog you tend to drag out all our best stuff in the first few months, but not that many people actually see it. So for the next while, here will be some oldies, but I hope goodies! Enjoy!
