Pasta Craving

I'm linking up with Melynda over at Mom's Sunday Cafe
to join in the Hearth & Soul Blog Hop.

I've been craving pasta lately but thinking that if ignored it, it would go away.

I washed some grape tomatoes and Cremini mushrooms (yes, I wash my mushrooms, don't tell Rachel Ray).
I threw them in a bowl with some sliced red onion grated garlic, basil, pepper and the drizzled on the olive oil.  Mixed it up a bit with my hands and put it in a baking dish. 
Roasted everything on 425 degrees for about 9 minutes or until the tomatoes were soft.  Then I crushed them slightly with a fork.
Tossed them with some bow tie pasta and topped with a bit of fresh grated Parmesan cheese.
And the world is a better place because of it.

just call me jo said...

Yep, I'm a mushroom washer too. What do those brush 'em people know? There's dirt on them, folks. Little particles of soil. eewwe!
Looks scrumptious. (By the way, our lunch is NEXT Friday, right? I'm sitting here in my jammies reading a book and it's 10:30. If I'm supposed to be at OG at 1, I'm in trouble. I am a mess.) Confused, as always--Jo (not Joe, but i do kinda like the "dude" term...)

Replace the Cremini mushrooms with artichokes and it would be perfect.
