Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 lb. red and yellow cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup small thin green beans

1/2 Cup fresh bread crumbs
1/2 Cup parmesan
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lb. fusilli or other pasta
1/2 cup fresh basil chopped


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Put the tomato halves and string beans in a large baking dish and spread evenly.

Combine the garlic, crumbs and grated parmesan, salt and pepper. Spoon evenly over the vegetables and dribble the olive oil over the top. Roast for 35 minutes.

Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al dente.

Add pasta to the tomato mixture in the baking dish. Sprinkle the basil over the top and toss lightly. Serve immeadiately.
