Linguine with roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic breadcrumbs January 2, 2012

I got this recipe from the Weight Watchers magazine. The jury is a bit out on it but I decided to post it anyway, you might like to try it. I just think it’s a bit dry, big lashings of olive oil would probably sort it out but that’s not really the Weight Watchers way.
