Garlic Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes!

Quick dinner on a weeknight?

The Recipe:

The Vegan Garlic Pasta recipe from MinimalistBaker.com

Procedure:

Follow the instructions. I didn’t change much (apart from slightly adjusting some proportions according to what I could find and what I had on hand. I used three tablespoons of chopped leeks instead of the shallots. It was nice!)

Shopping List:

  • 3 cups grape tomatoes
  • 10 ounces whole wheat pasta
  • Olive oil
  • 2 medium shallots
  • 8 large cloves garlic
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • 3-4 Tbsp unbleached all purpose flour (or another thickener of choice)
  • 2.5 cups unsweetened plain Almond Breeze

My Story:

I looked this up a couple of weeks ago and was excited to make it. So I did!

Tomatoes!

Those of you who know me are aware of my general aversion to tomatoes. I like sauces and them being a part of things, but a fresh tomato is not my favorite ingredient, so I wanted to try something new.

This turned out well! I definitely processed the sauce in a blender to get it smooth and creamy- that was a good choice. Impressively garlic-y and smooth.IMG_7351

Shells were a good choice because they picked up the sauce well. It wasn’t quite as good reheated (I had it the next day as well), but in a frying pan it was pretty tasty still. Garlic Pasta!IMG_7373

I vote- give this recipe a shot! I’ve always loved MinimalistBaker- they explain well, have great photos and great recipes, and are super helpful!
