day 26 = why not combine pasta ponza and pasta primavera?

since we've been back from italy, i have been craving pasta. we have a lot of vegetables in the house today, but not really much else. i wanted to make something with an olive oil sauce, but it's surprisingly been hard to find a recipe among my collection. instead, i am combining two recipes from Giada de Laurentiis: pasta ponza (in the "giada at home" cookbook) and pasta primavera and giving it my little flare :)

enjoy watching the progress...

start by chopping a good amount of garlic

sprinkle salt, pepper, olive oil, garlic, and breadcrumbs on halved cherry tomatoes.
bake in 375 degree oven for 30 mins, set aside. 


chop vegetables into thin slices. add some italian seasoning, hot pepper flakes, salt, pepper, olive oil (a good amount), bread crumbs, and remaining garlic.
bake in 450 degree oven for 20 mins, turning.

start making your pasta (i used spaghetti). pull vegetables out of oven when finished.
mine looked like this:

plate pasta with vegetables and tomatoes. add a sprinkle of parsley and feta cheese.
mix it all together and you are all set to eat!

  1. Looks Delicious! Wish you were here making it so we could eat it - not a popcorn fan - hate when the shells get in my teeth and stick in my throat but I bet Tom would love it!
