ounces uncooked fettucini noodles
tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
ounces tomatoes (cherry or grape)
ounces spinach (baby spinach or chopped spinach)
cloves garlic, smashed
salt (kosher or sea salt)
freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Set a large pot of water to boil on the stove.
Slice the tomatoes in half and the zucchini into 1/4 inch slices. Add them to a large bowl and add 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Gently toss with your hands.
Place the tomatoes and zucchini slices on your prepared pan and set the bowl aside. Make sure the tomatoes are skins up. Add the smashed garlic cloves and several thyme sprigs to the pan. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper. Place the pan in the oven and roast the vegetables for 15 minutes or until the tomato skins have cracked. Remove from the pan from the oven.
Place the fettucini noodles into the boiling water and cook according to the package instructions.
Put the spinach into the set-aside bowl and add one ladleful of water from the pasta pot. Drain the fettucini in a colander and add it to the bowl. Add the last tablespoon of olive oil and the roasted tomatoes and zucchini to the bowl. Toss all ingredients together and serve hot.
