A note about serious food allergies

If you're ready for a fresh take on “spaghetti and red sauce,” this is the meal for you. Sun-dried tomatoes create a jammy, concentrated flavor base for this pesto in a pasta dish that's intense in the best possible way. It's accentuated by grape tomatoes, fresh spinach, and slivered almonds for a meal that's just as easy as sauce from a jar, and way more satisfying.

    Combine tomatoes, half the garlic (reserve remaining for bread), 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper on half of prepared baking sheet. Spread into a single layer on their half. Place halved baguette on other half of baking sheet, cut side up. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil, remaining garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in hot oven until baguette is toasted and lightly browned and tomatoes have softened, 7-10 minutes. While baguette and tomatoes roast, finish pasta.
