Here is a great summer meal. This was so simple to make, had very few ingredients, and tasted so good! This is a definite make-again meal. I halved this recipe and it was just enough for the three of us.
GRILLED TOMATO LINGUINE
from "Everyday Food"
Makes 4 - 6 servings
Grilled tomatoes (recipe follows)
1 pound linguine
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup finely grated fresh Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving (we used fresh Romano)
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon salt, and 1 pound linguine. Cook according to package directions. Drain; return to pot.
Add oil, Parmesan, and grilled tomatoes. Divide among bowls, and serve immediately with more Parmesan.
3 pounds plum (Roma) tomatoes, cored and halved
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Heat grill to high. In a bowl, toss tomatoes, olive oil and thyme. Season generously with salt and pepper.
Starting with cut sides down, grill tomatoes until soft and charred, 8 to 12 minutes per side.
Return tomatoes to bowl; cut into rough pieces.
