  • 1 1/2 pounds plum tomatoes, quartered lengthwise
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 6-inch hoagie rolls, split
  • 1 clove garlic, halved
  • 1 1 pound package frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed and halved crosswise
  • 3/4 ounce cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley


Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 500 degrees . Arrange the tomatoes cut side up on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet, drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil on top and season with salt and pepper; roast until tender, about 20 minutes. Transfer the tomatoes and any juices to a large bowl.

Meanwhile, during the last 5 minutes of roasting, brush 1 tablespoon olive oil onto the cut sides of the hoagie rolls, season with salt and toast in the oven. Rub each toast with the garlic clove.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook according to package directions, adding the green beans for the last 2 minutes of cooking; drain. Add to the tomatoes along with the mozzarella, parsley and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil; toss and season with salt and pepper. Serve with the garlic toasts.
