Roasted Tomato and Feta Pasta

This pasta salad is absolutely amazing. It tastes equally delicious hot or cold and is very easy and relatively quick to toss together, but you do need an hour to roast the tomatoes. Trust me... it's definitely worth it! It went perfectly well with the pizza bites (recipe shared below) but could easily be the main entry. Enjoy!

Roasted Tomato and Feta Pasta

4-6 tomatoes, cut in bite size wedges
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons minced onion
1/2 teasoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 Tablespoon Oregano
2 Tablespoons Italian Seasoning (I used a McCormick Grinder)
2-4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 box penne noodles
1 container Tomato and Basil Feta cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Cut tomatoes in bite size wedges and place on a single layer in pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Create a spice mixture by combining the garlic, minced onion, salt, sugar, oregano and Italian Seasoning. Sprinkle all of mixture on the tomatoes. Place in oven uncovered for one hour. Meanwhile, boil water and cook noodles according to package. When tomatoes are done, toss them with pasta and add the Feta cheese.
