  • Oven


  • 1 pound dry spaghetti noodles
  • 4 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped white onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves chopped

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Place tomatoes onto a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or tin foil for easier clean up. Drizzle tomatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until skin just starts to split. Remove.

Remove from heat and just before serving stir in roasted tomatoes gently.
