Gemelli with Roasted Tomatoes and Corn


One of my favorite go to meals is pasta. In the warmer months I especialy love it sauced with the juices from seasonal veggies. Gemelli with Roasted Tomatoes and Corn comes together so quickly. All I did was roast a bunch of ripe tomatoes, garlic, and sweet summer corn. Once cooked the vegetables breaks down, become sweeter and produce the most delicious liquid. I then tossed these seaosnal goodies with the pasta and fresh basil and my meal was complete. It was totally delicious, fresh tasting and sweet. The simplicity of this meal is as wonderful and the dish is mouth-watering.
