Roast tomato pasta for dinner

I picked a lovely big basket of tomatoes today
Then a neighbour came calling with some pretty yellow baby ones
So we swapped some of his for some of my large round ones.

I put cut them into halves and quarters and place them onto
a baking tray lined with baking paper
Sprinkled them with good olive oil
Tossed them about a bit

Tore up some freshly picked basil leaves and sprinkled them over

Added a few cloves of garlic unpeeled 

Placed them into a hot oven for about 40 Min's until lovely and fragrant
and soft.
Meanwhile into a pan of boiling salted water I placed some spinach 

All roasted

Toss them through the tagliatelle 

Served with a lovely fetta mixed salad

Tea to finish

Hope you enjoy your lovely long Australian Day weekend
Join me for some nice linky parties
the links on my side bar.

Loved LOVE this post, Jeanette! Especially since your summer means my winter and I'm freezing - but your fresh picked tomato pasta meal was transporting to warmer days when my hubby and I love to eat meals like this. Right now - we're all about SOUP!! Brrrr!
