warm pasta salad

I haven't been good about posting lately, partly because I have been busy with some life / schedule changes (new job - yay), and partly because there's a new (hand-me-down) camera in the mix yet no more Photoshop.  All in all it's thrown off the rhythm I was trying to get into.  I'm also in the midst of a few home projects, none of which are finished or ready to share.  But we haven't missed a beat in terms of trying new recipes! Here's one we made last night:  

Warm Pasta Salad with Roasted Tomatoes and Poached Eggs  
to serve 2-3 you will need:

1/2 lb pasta, we used bowties
3-4 genrous handfuls of arugula or other wilt-able green like spinach
3 medium tomatoes, roasted
1-2 eggs per person, poached
fresh cheese, we used Parmesan
olive oil
salt and pepper

This is pretty simple.  Roast the tomatoes first, since this takes the most time (see how here) using a little extra olive oil.  Cook pasta according to instructions, drain, and set aside to cool slightly.  When tomatoes are done, drizzle olive oil goodness over the pasta and toss with greens and cheese.  Poach the eggs*.  Serve the pasta topped with tomatoes, eggs, and some extra pepper.

*I tried poaching eggs for the first time last week.  It's a lot easier than I thought.  If you don't know how, these instructions worked for me.
