Ingredients

  • 8 oz. dry pasta -- we used bucatini
  • 1 package each red and yellow grape tomatoes 10.5 oz. each
  • cup sliced fresh garlic
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • Salt black pepper, and red pepper flakes
  • 4 cups combination arugula and baby spinach 1 small bag *
  • Grated Pecorino Romano cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Toss tomatoes and garlic with 2 Tablespoons of olive oil; season with salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes. Arrange tomatoes and garlic in a single layer on prepared baking sheet; roast until tomatoes just begin to burst, about 15 minutes.
  • While the tomatoes and garlic are roasting, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water according to directions; reserve 1 cup pasta water **, then drain. Make sure the pasta is al dente.
  • Toss the arugula and baby spinach with remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large bowl; season with salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes. Add the pasta, tomatoes, and garlic; toss to combine, adding reserved pasta water to reach desired sauce consistency.
  • Garnish each serving with Pecorino Romano cheese.

Notes

  • * You may use just baby spinach, arugula, or a combination. I had a small package of spinach/arugula combination on hand; I used the entire package.
  • ** I didn't need the entire cup of pasta water -- I used ½ cup.
