roasted tomato and onion pasta
You know I can't resist my spaghetti. If I don't know what to make for dinner, 75% of the time it'll wind up being up pasta. On this particular night I started out with a basket of plum tomatoes, and decided to roast them with some onions, olive oil and salt and pepper.
Of course, when they were in the oven and I was deciding what to serve with them, I fell back on that old stand by, spaghetti.
It was a good move. Sweetly roasted tomatoes and onions, plenty of parsley and grated cheese, and a beaten egg quickly cooked in the hot pasta for added richness and protein... It was a little bit like a carbonara with tomato instead of bacon, and let me tell you, it was quite good.
