We eat a ton of pasta with the tomato, basil, cheese combo. Especially in the summer. And I love baked or grilled tomatoes. So it was basically just a natural progression that the two would end up on the same plate as the main dish in my house.
I saw the picture on Pinterest and knew it had to be mine. It's originally from the Real Simple website. You can go here for the recipe: Basil Spaghetti With Cheesy Broiled Tomatoes
The only change I made was, I used a whole pound of whole wheat pasta, instead of 12 ounces of regular. It calls for 2 cloves of garlic - next time I'd use more. It would also be really good with pesto.
We had a mixed green salad and bread to go with ours.
Here's dinner on my plate:
