Pasta with Roasted Garlic & Tomatoes Recipe

Here’s a simple sauce with just four ingredients, and it's savory enough for a fancy party. I use bowtie pasta, but penne works, too. — Aysha Schurman, Ammon, Idaho

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 30, 2014

My family didn't like this. We ended up go out to eat that night. Something was missing and we all felt the tomato taste was too strong. Needed more flavor.

I don't know why but my family did not care much for this--adding chicken would probably help but there was just something missing.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 5, 2014

Love that this is so simple & delish! Would be good with chicken added for those that need meat in every meal.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 23, 2014

Ok, I tweaked this a little and LOVED IT. Plan on serving for guests this summer. Here's what I did:

10 oz cherry tomatoes

1 can of Italian diced tomatoes

All the rest the same and then added sliced blackened chicken on top. Sprinkled with fresh parsley.

AMAZING,

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 22, 2014

Tried this and liked the flavor, but I skimped on the tomatoes and cream cheese ? didn't have it all in the fridge. So, the dish suffered, unfortunately. Would like to try it again. Loved the idea of roasting the tomatoes and garlic for flavor. This would be a great dish to use when my garden is bursting with cherry tomatoes!
