It known as for sluggish roasting grape tomatoes with further virgin olive oil, garlic, dried thyme, basil and oregano for 2 hours at 300°F. Warning, make heaps as they’re excellent candy little bombs with so many potential makes use of (pasta, pizza, bruschetta, and so on.)!!
Additionally excellent was the cooking technique used right here. Including and sluggish roasting completely different components at completely different cooking occasions was pure genius. It produced a smoky, complicated mixture of flavors and greater than sufficient sauce for the shredded hen thighs, which have been so tender, and the bucatini.
Of observe, I did add the entire reserved pasta water on the finish. I discovered the bucatini to be an ideal pasta selection for the chunky sauce because it grasped the sauce nicely. All in all, there’s nothing I’d change about this recipe and sit up for fortunately making it many times.
