Roasted Tomato and Sausage Pasta

Yum


This roasted tomato and sausage pasta is a perfect weeknight meal that will have your whole family running to the table. 
 
During the summer, cooking dinner was a time I could spend in the kitchen and concentrate on the meal ahead.  These days dinner time is not only about cooking.  I am also helping my two kids with homework while I cook dinner.  So I came up with this great pasta dish that gets done in the oven while I spend time looking over homework and helping practice multiplication tables.  
 
All I have to do to finish off the dish is boil the pasta and toss all the ingredients together before dinner is ready.  This meal was a big hit with the family. That's a good thing because I see this meal happening a lot this school year.

  2. This is a nice prep for a quick dinner, nice photos as well. Roasted tomato and sausage pasta is something new to me but I would want to try it out and just merely looking at the photos here makes me want to make it right away. I'll just have to finish this term papers written by professional us writers and look inside my pantry if I have all the ingredients needed, if not I will have to go the store.
