Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes Recipe

I love it when The Secret Recipe Club challenge arrives in my inbox! Even when I am very busy and think I might not have time to get it all done for the month. This month I was assigned Melissa’s Cuisine and I spent a morning reading through her blog. Melissa’s husband Mike is certainly very lucky that she enjoys spending so much time in the kitchen! I once again decided to make a pasta dish. This is a meal I can create over the weekend and both Dave and I can enjoy it on a Sunday night when we come back from our weekly wine tasting. As we have a great selection of exotic tomatoes at the moment, this recipe for pasta with roasted tomatoes stood out as the one I wanted to make.

I printed the recipe out the day after we got our assignments, and again, life got in the way of blogging. We went away for a long weekend, and I did not want to leave it to the Sunday night before our reveal date to make this dish. I went home early one day last week as we had no electricity at work, and used the time I had spare to make supper. Everything was ready to go when Dave got home from gym which was great. I have adapted the recipe as we don’t get ground turkey in South Africa and I can say it was lovely.

  1. I cannot grow tomatoes either. Fortunately, there are enough farmers around me who do it well. I love roasting tomatoes: they fill the kitchen with a great smell. Thank you for contributing to Presto Pasta Nights.

  3. Now I have another menu option for the bounty of tomatoes that are about to appear. We planted 20!! plants this year. I think might have been a little excessive :)

  4. Mmm, I bet this is delicious! Everything roasted tomato (and sun-dried tomato…okay, maybe just “tomato” in general…) is so good and tastes so rich and summery.

  5. Roasting the tomatoes makes them so sweet and yummy. I also find it hard to find ground turkey in Hong Kong or even just turkey as a matter of fact here.

    • I have never seen it or tasted it, but afterwards I wondered if I should have used ground chicken instead :)

  8. This looks delicious! I have a few tomatoes ripening in the garden that might be destined for this sauce. Great pick :-)
