    A Colon Cancer Patient Gets the Right Care at the Right Time

    To serve four.

    2 Pints Cherry Tomatoes-split in half
    12 Garlic Cloves-peeled, left whole
    ¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    ¾ Lb. Penne or Gemelle Pasta-boiled in salted water until barely tender, drained
    1 Cup Fresh Basil Leaves-cut into little strips or torn into pieces
    1/3 Cup Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
    Salt and Black Pepper to taste
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil as needed

    Preheat oven to 375°f. Toss the cherry tomatoes and garlic with the olive oil, sprinkling lightly with salt. Arrange tomatoes and garlic in a single layer on a baking sheet, cut side of the tomatoes facing up. Bake in the oven for about 35 minutes or until very softened and smaller in size.

    In a bowl, toss together the hot pasta, basil, Parmesan, and the roasted tomato/garlic mixture. Season pasta to taste with salt and pepper and moisten with more olive oil as needed. Serve and enjoy!
