Hello! Today I am sharing a deliciously easy and tasty pasta dish – Roasted Cherry Tomato Pasta!

It is super simple with roasted cherry tomatoes, basil, olive oil, rigatoni and a little melted cheese….need I say more?

You can eat it warm for dinner with salad and bread and then save the leftovers for lunch the next day and it is delicious cold too! 

This is for sure one of my favorite under 30 minutes dinners and you will quickly see why!
