Roasted Tomato Spaghetti






Pasta is a staple dish in my family's weekly meal planner. We have it at least once a week. Since its so easy to cook and there are so many variations in the way you can serve pasta, you can never get bored with it. One dish that is a firm family favourite is Roasted tomato spaghetti. It's so effortless to prepare, making it the perfect week night meal when everyone is hungry after work and you need a speedy tasty dish.

There is a lovely section of pasta recipe ideas on the Bertolli web site. I have taken inspiration for this dish from Gennaro Contaldo's Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce but I have adapted it by adding some of my family's favourite vegetables. Making the recipe using the Bertolli with butter really enhances the flavour of the dish.

  8. I do something similar almost every week, but I've never tried it with butter or Bertolli with butter. I usually just stick to a little bit of olive oil, but I will give it a try for sure!
