Mushroom, roasted tomato and garlic pasta

Today I left work a bit late and was all set to order a takeaway. But I was pleasantly surprised on reaching home - Salil was in the kitchen making pasta. This wasn't the surprising bit (he does like to cook and is very good at it). The surprising bit was that he was actually writing down the recipe for the blog! :). 

The pasta was perfect, the roasted garlic bits tasted brilliant and I absolutely loved the simplicity of the dish.

Serves 2-3

100 gms uncooked spaghetti
250 gms cherry tomatoes halved
4 garlic cloves peeled and sliced
250 gms chestnut mushrooms
3 spring onions chopped (keep the white and green separate)
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp fresh rosemary chopped
Parmesan to garnish (optional)
Salt to taste


Preheat the oven to 180 C. 

In a baking dish , toss the tomatoes, garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil, rosemary and chilli flakes. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well and bake for 25 minutes

Meanwhile, cook the pasta in some salted water. Once cooked drain and keep aside. 

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and cook the white part of the spring onions for about 1-2 minutes. Toss in the mushrooms and cook for 8 - 10 minutes or until the mushrooms have softened. 

Add the cooked pasta and the roasted tomatoes and garlic and toss everything together. Garnish with the rest of the spring onions (the green bit)

Serve with some parmesan on top (optional)

p.s The ingredients and the method were perfectly written down...I've trained Salil well ;)
