Pasta with Roasted Garlic & Tomatoes
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
Really not a fan. This might have been better with cream instead of cream cheese. The cream cheese brought a sour flavor to it.
Substitute goat cheese for cream cheese for those of us who are lactose intoleran!
For my taste, I added some other spices and a few family tricks. Ingredients I shuffled were the garlic and tomatoes. Also it was a good menu for us, with our mods. Also, my mom had a similar recipe but she used plum tomatoes, more olive oil and vermicelli pasta and lots less garlic. Her rendition was better.
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.
Love that this is so simple & delish! Would be good with chicken added for those that need meat in every meal.
Ok, I tweaked this a little and LOVED IT. Plan on serving for guests this summer. Here's what I did:10 oz cherry tomatoes1 can of Italian diced tomatoesAll the rest the same and then added sliced blackened chicken on top. Sprinkled with fresh parsley.AMAZING,
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!
My family really enjoyed this recipe! The cream cheese is a nice change in flavor for a tomato-based recipe and creates an appealing creamy texture. I used Neufchâtel cream cheese to cut down on the fat. I will add this to my frequently used pasta dish recipes.
