With the beautiful summery weather we have been getting lately I decided to post a favourite summer dish of mine. It is super easy and later on in the summer I usually just use the tomatoes from my garden...but for now, Store bought will have to do!
In a large roasting pan arrange about 20 Cherry Tomatoes, sliced in half. At the store I found a package of baby heirloom tomatoes and bought those (they did cost a lot for tomato's though). It gave a really nice colour combination to the salad. Season the tomatoes with Salt, Pepper and Olive Oil. Roast in the oven at 400F for about 15-20minutes.
Roll up the basil in a tight roll
And thinly slice. Voila, juilienned!
When the pasta is ready rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process.
Add in the roasted tomatoes, olives, basil and dressing
Top with shredded Parmesan Cheese
Combine and serve!!
