Fresh Pasta

There’s a million recipes for fresh pasta, all slightly different. I use a few myself, but this one is definitely in my top 3! Let me know how you like the video!

If you’re vegan, use an egg replacement like Simply Eggless or Just Egg to your dough. I’ve tried it with both products, and it worked great each time!

Roasted Tomatoes

A slow, delicious treat for sandwiches, pizzas, or pasta, oh my!

Roasted Tomatoes: Makes 1 Pound

1 pound tomatoes of choice (I used tomatoes on the vine today, but I usually use romas or grape tomatoes.)

1 tsp white sugar

1 tsp brown sugar

3 cloves garlic, smashed

1 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp ground fennel

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flake

1/2 tsp rosemary

1/4 cup olive oil

1 bay leaf

Preheat your oven to 250F.

  1. In a cup or bowl, mix together your garlic, sugar, salt, oil, herbs, and spices.
  2. If using larger tomatoes, slice them to the thickness of your liking. Remember – they will cook down in the oven.
  3. Toss your tomatoes in the oil mixture, and place on a sheet tray, pouring any remaining dressing over the tomatoes.
  4. Bake for 2 hours, rotating your pan halfway through the cooking time to promote even baking.
  5. Allow to cool, and store in a glass or plastic container with the leftover cooking liquid.
  6. Enjoy on sandwiches, on pizzas, in salads, or anywhere else you might enjoy a roasty toasty tomato.

Tip: Use the leftover oil/juice that comes off of the tomatoes for other recipes! Toss pasta in it, make a salad dressing with it, or brush it over bread and toast! Don’t let that liquid gold go to waste!
