A light, yet decadent pasta dish is perfect for anyone who absolutely loves pasta! This Creamy Garlic Tomato Conchiglioni Pasta doesn't include any form of meat, but uses tons and tons of delicious tomato + garlic flavors! An easy weeknight meal for the entire family.
Right before 2022, I asked a series of questions in regards to your favorite types of food and unanimously, you all voted for more pasta on Orchids + Sweet Tea and so, this Creamy Garlic Tomato Conchiglioni Pasta makes it's greatest debut! Haha.
I mean---how could you not love a good pasta dish? It's one of the simplest, versatile, and fun dishes to whip together especially during those busy weeknights where a quick, delicious meal is needed for the entire family. I've had my fair share of pasta dishes on the site, but this one is definitely in my top 5 faves and for good reason. Want to know why? Keep reading.
Start making this recipe by roasting your tomatoes. This recipe for herb-roasted tomatoes produces the best-tasting, most concentrated roasted tomatoes. They have a thick, jammy texture that creates a sauce all on their own to coat your conchiglioni pasta.
Next, cook the conchiglioni according to package instructions. And while the pasta cooks, you can make the simple garlic and tomato sauce on the stove.
The more charred your tomatoes are, the sweeter they will be. You do still want a little structural integrity to the tomatoes, so bake them until they just start to blister and blacken. The blackened flavor on the outside of the tomato really enhances the herb seasonings, tomato paste, and minced garlic we will be adding to the sauce.
It’s Meatless, but still works for any eater.
Super easy to make and quick.
Full of flavor + so creamy! (The best reason!)
Very kid-friendly (entirely nut-free).
Done in just under 35 minutes.
If you want to add some greens to this pasta, you certainly can. My article, Our Top 12 Favorite Healthy Green Leafy Vegetables shares a list of great greens! Off the top----kale, spinach, or collard greens make great additions. Also, roasted broccolini is one of my faves to add.
You can store leftover bruschetta pasta in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days. I don’t recommend freezing the pasta, as it won’t defrost well.
When it comes to most pasta dishes, I often enjoy them with a side of bread of some sort. Most times, I make my own homemade Garlic Bread, however, you can choose to spruce things up with many other options such as:
