Description

Think of Hail Mary Pasta as a formula as much as a recipe — as long as you’ve got pasta, garlic, tomatoes, and olive oil, you’ve got dinner. Treat those four ingredients as a launching pad, adding whatever other vegetables or fresh herbs you have on hand to the tomatoes. (No zucchini, as we’ve added here? Try corn kernels, a leafy green like spinach, or other favorite vegetable, cut small.) By roasting everything in a very hot oven, dinner will be ready in the time it takes to cook the pasta. Feel free to vary the cheese on top, or leave it out entirely. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Debbie Koenig.

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 450°F with a rack in the center.
    2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.
    3. In a sheet pan, combine tomatoes, zucchini, garlic, olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Stir and roast until the tomatoes begin to burst and some of the juices brown, 15-25 minutes, occasionally stirring the vegetables or giving the dish a good shake.

    No meat. Pretty good otherwise. Too much zucchini. I used just one. Onions and mushrooms would be nice. Would make again with protein.

    I made this with cherry tomatoes and garlic, but cleaned out my fridge, adding chopped onion and celery and strips of red bell pepper and about a tablespoon of lemon zest, salt and pepper. I kept baby spinach out to mix just to wilt with the hot pasta. Otherwise followed the recipe. Very good!
