1 tbsp olive oil

3 cups grape tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried rosemary or basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp smoked paprika (optional)
2 tbsp red or white wine vinegar
8 oz whole wheat rotini or fusilli pasta
1 cup shredded Asiago or Provolone cheese

1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
2. Place butter and oil in a 13- by 9-inch (33 by 23 cm) glass baking dish. Heat in oven for 3 minutes or until butter is melted.
