Smoked Tomato and Garlic Pasta

Great summer meal tonight. I sliced a few large beefsteak tomatoes, also smaller romas and some sungold cherry tomatoes. Salt, pepper, basil, and olive oil and smoked on the BGE at 450 for 40 minutes. Probably could have pulled the cherry tomatoes at 30 minutes, a few of them ended up burning away. Also roasted a head of garlic at the same time.

To assemble: first the pasta, top with some of the tomatoes, torn basil, shaved Parmesan, squeeze a few cloves of the roasted garlic on top. The smoky flavor of the tomatoes was awesome!

    Like the look of those 'maters. Often do a baked pasta with the 'maters and garlic getting maybe 20 minutes of smoke time before they go into the sauce and mixed with the pasta.
