Slow Roasted Tomato Pasta with Vegan Feta
- 2-3 lbs tomatoes
- 8 small garlic cloves, chopped
- ½ cup fresh basil leaves
- 2-3 tbsp olive oil
- ½ tsp S&P (to taste)
- 1 tsp dry oregano, za'atar (optional)
- 3-4 servings pasta (penne, rotini or similar)
- ¼ cup feta cheese (vegan)
- hot pepper flakes
- 2-4 leaves basil, cut into ribbons
Slow Roasting the Tomatoes
- Preheat oven to 325º F.
- Slice tomatoes in half (cocktail, plum, roma, etc), place cut side up in a greased ovenproof pan.
- Stir together the garlic, basil, olive oil, and optional oregano/za-atar in a small bowl.
- Spoon mixture on each tomato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Flavor Option: Add a sprinkle of oregano or za'atar.
- Bake for 2-3 hours or more (depending on size of tomatoes and how hot your oven runs) until withered and edges are browned. The larger the tomatoes, the longer they will roast.
Cooking the Pasta
- Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain. Toss with a drizzle of olive oil.
- Pro Tip: choose penne or rotini so the delicious garlicky bits of sauce and feta get caught in the crooks of the pasta.
