Intensely Flavored Pasta Dish that Satisfies on All Levels is Truly a Thing of Beauty.
It’s no secret that I love citrus of all kinds. When thinking about what to have for dinner, and seeing as I had a couple pints of grape tomatoes and some cara cara oranges on hand, I opted to roast them together on one large sheet pan, along with some seasonings, oil and little vinegar. Roasting the fruit intensifies its flavor and the tomatoes and oranges combine beautifully.
After tossing the roasted fruits with cooked casarecce pasta (one of my favorite pasta shapes) I added some chopped flat leaf parsley, and topped it with shredded ricotta salada.
I still thought it needed a hit of something crisp, so I sprinkled on some crispy shallots. I always keep a jar on hand. They come in so handy for garnishing different kinds of dishes and are readily available online if you don’t live near a Southeast Asian market.
Deciding it still needed something bright, I supremed an orange and added a couple segments to each serving, along with a sprinkle of Aleppo pepper. Now we were talking.
A one dish meal that satisfies on all levels. My kind of food
