2️⃣ Roasted Tomato Pasta with Mushrooms, Herbs & Sun-Dried Tomatoes 🍃🌿 this pasta is SO flavorful and simple, and is one of my family’s favorites. Even the kids 🎉🍃🌿
In this recipe, the mushrooms are chopped really small, so that they get some great browning and blend in to add amazing flavor, along with roasted tomatoes, which are just gems of nature all on their own. Fresh herbs are really delicious in here too, parsley and basil. The recipe uses 1/3 cup, but you can adjust to your preference. 🍃🌿
