3-Ingredient Cheese Tortellini with Tomatoes & Basil

Tonight's recipe is from 45 minutes and the result was a perfect sauce. 
I do love roasted cherry tomatoes. Delicious.


2 pints cherry tomatoes

cup extra-virgin olive oil 

½ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper

1 pound refrigerated cheese tortellini

1 cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced


Preheat oven to 425°F. Put a large pot of water on to boil.

Place tomatoes in a shallow baking dish or pan. Add oil, salt, and pepper and toss to combine. Roast for 25 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 200° and continue cooking until the tomatoes are soft and juicy about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook tortellini according to package directions. Drain. 
Add the roasted tomatoes to the drained tortellini and toss. Top with basil.
