  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  1. Preheat oven to 250°F (convection 225°F). Spread tomatoes, cut sides up, in a foil-lined sheet pan. Sprinkle with garlic and oregano; season liberally with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil, and roast for 2 hours.
  2. Add asparagus, turning to coat all sides in oil in pan. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Roast for 1 hour.
  3. Add mushrooms, stirring to distribute evenly; roast for 1 hour.
  4. Remove half of tomatoes to food processor; process briefly until finely chopped. Keep remaining tomatoes, asparagus and mushrooms warm while preparing sauce and trout.
  5. Prepare pasta according to package directions; keep warm.
  6. In a small pan, heat whipping cream until it barely simmers. With motor running, add warmed cream to chopped tomatoes in a steady stream. When mixture is combined, return to pan and add Parmesan cheese. Simmer for 5 minutes or until sauce just begins to bubble.
  7. Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, heat olive oil. Add trout, skin-side up, and cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Turn and cook until trout turns opaque, about another 2-3 minutes.
  8. Prepare Pasta Rosa by combining cooked pasta with sauce and stirring to coat. Top trout with roasted vegetables. Serve with Pasta Rosa.
