Roasted Vegetable Pasta

Roasted Vegetables with Linguine
I found this recipe out of one of my cooking magazines. It is very easy to make, low in calories, vegetarian, and quite delish. You have to roast the tomatoes for 45 minutes to an hour so it is best to make it when it is cold outside. The original recipe was made with just plum tomatoes but since then I have added squash and zucchini. You can add whatever vegetables you like best. The recipe calls for 10 tomatoes but I only used 5 last night because I only wanted to make half. If you are feeding 6 adults then you should roast 10-12.

10 - 12 plum tomatoes
zucchini chopped
squash chopped
1/2 c. olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 tbs Italian seasonings or what ever you like
salt and pepper
1 lb Linguine

Cut tomatoes in half and place them cut sides up on cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Mix olive oil and all other ingredients in bowl. Spoon 1/2 the mixture on top of the tomatoes. Roast these in a preheated oven of 400 degrees for about 45 to 60 minutes until tomatoes are soft and slightly brown. Cook pasta until al dente. Smash roasted vegetable with remaining oil mixture and then add pasta and toss until all the pasta is coated. plate and sprinkle with a little Parmesan cheese.

I hope you like and let me know what you think.
