The easiest pasta recipe in the world

While I leave the main vegetable growing to him outdoors on the allotment, my job is to grow the tomatoes in the greenhouse at home.  He usually grows Moneymaker outdoors, but due to disaster with blight spreading across the allotment over the last few years I think next year I will have to find space in the garden for a few plants.  But I reserve the greenhouse for my favourite variety Sungold.  This is a small orange cherry tomato with an intense sweet flavour that is simply delicious.  I am just coming to the end of the summer glut.  I wash and bag them as they are and freeze them loosely so that they can just be tipped out of bags for cooking.  This is my favourite pasta recipe to use with the fresh or the frozen tomatoes.
Wash the tomatoes and put into an oven proof dish.  Sprinkle with olive oil, garlic powder and dried Italian herbs.  Put under the grill for a few minutes until they are soft and starting to char slightly.
Meanwhile cook some pasta.  When ready, tip the pasta in a bowl and top with the tomatoes and lovely juices.  Delicious!
