Jean Smith - Pennsauken

2 lbs cherry tomatoes
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 tsp salt, divided
1/4 tsp pepper
5 large garlic cloves (unpeeled)
4 cups hot cooked linguine (about 8 ounces uncooked pasta)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
1/2 tbsp sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine cherry tomatoes, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/4 tsp salt, pepper and garlic in a 13x9 baking dish. (Add 1/2 tbsp of sugar, if desired.) Toss gently. Bake for 45 minutes at 450 degrees or until garlic is browned, stirring occasionally. (Tomato skins will pop.) Squeeze garlic cloves to extract pulp into tomato mixture, stirring gently. Combine tomato mixture, 2 tbsp oil, 1/4 tsp salt, pasta, parsley and basil in a large bowl. Toss gently.
