I posted this picture on Instagram a few weeks ago, and apparently you guys thought it looked delicious because several people asked for the recipe? Ummm, what? This looks kind of awful (thanks, iPhone) but whatever. I'll go with it.
This is actually 2 recipes thrown together to create a wonderful antidote to the more common than I care to admit scenario of "oh-shit-it's-7pm-and-I-haven't-thought-about-dinner-yet". Right. Moving on.
Found on Pinterest, obviously. Part of another dish from Yummy Mummy Kitchen. Her photography is lovely and her recipe is spot on. My little version of the roasted tomatoes is below:
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 container cherry tomatoes
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 teaspoon salt
pinch red pepper flakes
Mix this all together and throw in a baking dish. Cover tightly with foil and let it do it's thing in a 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes.
Just make some pasta. You can figure this out.
Adapted from Martha but not really because I've only looked at this recipe once before linking it here. Basically, take some fresh spinach, olive oil, garlic, Parmesan cheese (I use the kind from a green shaker container. No judgement here, friend) and salt and pepper and mix it up in a food processor. Add a little more olive oil until you get a paste like consistency. Done. For real. I never have pine nuts (mostly because they are crazy expensive) but if you have some on hand, throw them in too.
Mix the pest with the pasta then add in the roasted tomatoes. Throw in some sauteed shrimp, or grilled chicken if that suits your fancy.
Eat a huge bowl.
