  • 1 pound red and/or yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed

  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 1 16 ounce package dried rotini pasta

  • cup olive oil

  • 2 tablespoon white wine vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper

  • 8 ounce small fresh mozzarella balls or cubed fresh mozzarella

  • ½ cup snipped fresh basil


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Arrange tomato halves, cut sides up, in a foil-lined 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with oregano, garlic, and salt; drizzle with the 1/4 cup olive oil. Roast tomatoes, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until light brown and shriveled. Set aside.

  3. Add the tomatoes and any drippings from the pan, the mozzarella, and basil to the pasta. Toss to combine. Serve at room temperature.
