When ready to cook, start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 400 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Wash tomatoes and cut them in half, length width. Place them in a baking dish cut side up.
Sprinkle with chopped parsley, garlic, add salt and black pepper and pour 1/4 cup of olive oil over them.
Place on pre-heated Traeger and bake for 1 1/2 hours. Tomatoes will shrink and the skins will be partly blackened.
Remove tomatoes from baking dish and place in a food processor leaving the cooked oil, and puree them.
Drop pasta into boiling salted water and cook until tender. Drain and toss immediately with the pureed tomatoes.
Add the remaining 1/4 cup of raw olive oil and crumbled hot red pepper to taste. Toss and serve. Enjoy!
