Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    18 cherry tomatoes (halved)
    3 cloves of garlic (crushed)
    3 tbsp olive oil
    Pinch of crushed chili flakes or thinly sliced hot chili peppers
    Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
    450 grams of whole wheat linguini
    24 small broccoli florets
    1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
    1/3 cup Vegan Parmesan Cheese for the topping
    8 sprigs of fresh parsley for garnish


Directions

Makes 4 large servings

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the tomatoes in a shallow baking dish. Add the crushed garlic, the olive oil, the chili peppers, and the salt and pepper and toss to combine arranging the tomato halves so they are right side up.

Roast the tomatoes for 30 minutes, and then remove them from the oven.

Cook the linguini in a large pot of lightly salted, boiling water, until firm tender, about 7 mintues.

Add the broccoli florets to the pot and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the pasta and broccoli are firm but tender.

Drain well, saving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.

Place the pasta and broccoli in a large serving bowl.

Add the reserved cooking liquid, tomatoes and the oil they were cooked in. Add the fresh basil, and top with a dash of salt and pepper and a sprinkling of Vegan Parmesan Cheese. Garnish with fresh parsley.

  • This recipe's calories aren't accurate. The calories for the noodles are for cooked soba noodles, instead of uncooked whole wheat linguine (which is about 200 calories for 57 grams). So if you redo the math with the appropriate calories, it comes out to around 590 calories per serving. - 8/17/10

  • I served this to dinner guests and everyone loved it. I'm so glad the recipe called for whole wheat pasta or I would have bought regular and that just wouldn't have been as good. Next time I make this I will definitely add more cherry tomatoes. Yummy! - 8/3/08
