Finished Result

This quick pasta is delicious and as its made with roasted fresh cherry tomatoes it doesn't give an after taste that I find you can get if you use tinned tomatoes.

Pasta is always a fail safe in my house as the kids enjoy it and there is so many variations.

This recipe proves that making a fresh pasta sauce doesn't have to take a long time, cost a lot of money or have vast amounts of ingredients.
