Equipment

  • Casserole

Ingredients

  • 8 oz gluten-free pasta (I used chickpea pasta)
  • 2-3 cups whole cherry tomatoes, or any larger garden tomatoes diced or sliced
  • 2 medium zucchini, peeled or unpeeled
  • 1 whole head of garlic, top trimmed
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • fresh oregano sprigs, thyme or rosemary
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • fresh basil, cilantro or parsley garnishing

Instructions

  • In a large baking dish 9x5 add the tomatoes to cover the bottom of the dish. Snuggle in a whole head of garlic, top removed (not the root side). Drizzle veggies with a generous amount of olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Cook the pasta according to package instructions when the veggies are about half way through roasting. Drain and rinse pasta with cold water. Reserve about a cup of pasta water in case you need for the sauce (see notes)

Notes

Note; you may use anywhere from 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of olive oil. It will not be oily! The tomatoes will release a good amount of liquids and this will create a tasty sauce. Generally gluten-free pastas tend to be a bit dry, so the extra oil will come in handy. You can always soak up any remaining oil with a good crusty bread. Optional to add a 1/2 cup of pasta water to the casserole if you need more liquids.
