Simple Roasted Tomato & Smokey Chili Spaghetti

January 19 2016

Incredibly simple yet incredibly delicious! This recipe for roasted tomato and smokey chili spaghetti is super easy to prepare and yet bursts with amazing flavours.

All the sauce ingredients are combined in a baking dish and then placed in the oven for around 30-40 minutes. Once out of the oven, the tomatoes and garlic are mashed together with a fork and then tossed through the spaghetti. So easy! Roasting the cherry tomatoes lends them a delicious sweetness that, when combined with the chili and smoky paprika, creates the perfect flavour combination.

I love to serve this dish with a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, a fresh grating of Parmigiano Reggiano, and a scattering of fresh basil leaves. Enjoy!
