Balsamic Roasted Grape Tomatoes Over Angel Hair.

Balsamic Roasted Grape Tomatoes Over Angel Hair

  • Author: Big Flavors from a Tiny Kitchen - Ashley Covelli


I picked up some beautifully colored grape tomatoes from the store last week and was inspired to roast them and serve them over pasta. This was a super simple weeknight meal, and the results were absolutely delicious!


Units Scale
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups multicolored grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus a little more for the pasta
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped, plus a little more for garnish
  • kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1 pound angel hair pasta*, cooked according to package instructions
  • Parmesan cheese, for garnish (optional)
  • Red pepper flakes, for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a baking dish, toss together garlic, tomatoes, oil, balsamic, basil, salt and pepper. Roast in preheated oven for 20 minutes, stir, and roast for another 20 minutes, or until most of the tomatoes have burst open. While tomatoes are roasting, cook pasta according to package instructions, and drain. Toss in a little olive oil to keep the pasta from sticking to itself. Remove tomatoes from the oven and lightly press on any un-popped tomatoes with the back of your spoon, being careful not to squeeze too hard and burn yourself with molten tomato juice.
  2. To serve, put pasta in each of 4 dishes and top with roasted tomatoes, making sure to drizzle on the delicious pan juices as well. Garnish with more fresh basil, parmesan shavings, and red pepper flakes, if desired. Enjoy!
