How to Make Roasted Vegetable Pasta

This roasted vegetable pasta comes together fairly easily. You just have to give time for the liquid to reduce when making the herb sauce.

The sauce adds a little extra something to the pasta and tastes like no other pasta primavera out there.

  • Toss cut-up vegetables with olive oil and Italian seasoning. Roast until tender.
  • In a pan, sauté garlic with grape tomatoes.
  • Then add the vegetable broth or chicken stock and let the mixture reduce by half.
  • In the end, stir in butter and fresh parsley.
  • Toss with cooked pasta, roasted vegetables, and Parmesan.

Katya’s TIP: I like to use small shaped pasta for this dish, such as penne. But you can substitute whole wheat, gluten-free, or any type of pasta.

We personally go through phases with pasta. Sometimes I like all whole wheat, sometimes all white, and sometimes we’ll do something like chickpea pasta.
