Sweet Tomato Pasta

A delightful pasta with bright roasted tomatoes, creamy garlic & parsley!

Okay. This pasta dish does take time. But it is EASY.

The way I think of it, this dish is perfect for you if you work at home or are having a lazy Sunday: the ingredients only need a little bit of attention every now and then. And at the end of the day, you just combine pasta, tomatoes, garlic & parsley and you’re done!

Roasted in the oven all day the tomatoes come out sticky and sweet.

With all the liquid evaporated, they are bursting with flavor!

Is there a shortcut version?

If you don’t want to be bothered to poach your garlic and roast your tomatoes (although I highly recommend you do!) you can substitute jarred sun dried tomatoes in oil, and jarred garlic in oil.

Serving size…

I have made the measurements to serve 1-2 people, you can easily double or triple this to feed more hungry souls.

Now, get to cooking!…

For the Garlic



Roast the Tomatoes

    • Add tomatoes in a single layer, cut side up to a glass baking dish.
    • Add avocado oil, 1 teaspoon of kosher salt & sugar. Add 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano.
    • Preheat oven to 450 degrees, once at temperature, let sit for 20 minutes at 450 degrees.
    • Turn off oven, add tomatoes.
    • Let tomatoes roast slowly for the day. If you don't have the day, I would give them a minimum of 4 hours.
    Short cut method = buy sundried tomatoes jarred, in oil. Add a dash of sugar.

Poach the Garlic

    • In a small saucepan, add avocado oil & garlic. 

    • Cover. Bring to a full simmer, reduce heat and cook 5 minutes.

    • Remove from heat and let sit for 30 minutes. 

Combine with Pasta

    • Cook pasta.

    • Drain pasta. 

    • To pot add pasta, chopped parsley, roasted tomatoes & their oil. 

    • Add garlic, combine.
    When cooking the pasta, try the cold water pasta method! No need to boil a large pot of water. 1. Cover the pasta with 1 inch of water. 2. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. 3. Drain. No need to use a whole huge pot of boiling water, this method uses less water and works just as well!


Summertime is the perfect time of year to make this dish! The tomatoes will surely shine!
