Roasted Garlic and Tomato Pasta

2 lbs. Roma Tomatoes diced
1 T. Italian Seasoning
¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil plus 2 T.
2 Garlic Cloves minced
½ t. Salt
¼ t. Pepper
½ t. Crushed Red Pepper
1lb. Favorite Pasta
¾ Cup Parmesan Cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

On a cookie sheet place the tomatoes, skin side down, on the cookie sheet.  Mix all ingredients; minus the pasta, in a mixing bowl.  Pour the mixture over the tomatoes, and bake for 45 minutes or until the tomatoes are starting to turn brown.

While the tomatoes are cooking boil your pasta per box instructions.

When the tomatoes are finished cooking mash ½ of them with the pasta, and add 2 T. olive oil, and parmesan cheese in a bowl.  Mix thoroughly until the cheese is melted.  Toss the remaining tomatoes in the bowl.  Serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese on top, and garlic bread.
