This Pasta Primavera with roasted vegetables is such a great way to make a dish to serve a crowd and also pack in the veggies and herbs at the same time. The herbs and the variety of vegetables are truly what makes this so special and we can’t wait for you to make it!

  • Loaded with vegetables – All easy to find fresh vegetables
  • It’s great for leftovers or just serve a crowd!
  • Don’t want to turn on the oven? – You can saute the vegetables instead.

Ingredients

  • The Veggies – carrots, zucchinis, yellow squash, purple onion, an orange or yellow bell pepper, red bell pepper and cherry tomatoes.
  • For the seasoning – extra virgin olive oil, Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper and dried Italian herbs.
  • The pasta – I like to use farfalle (bowtie pasta) but your favorite pasta will work too.
  • For topping – grated Parmesan, optional.

How To Make The Pasta Primavera

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • On a large heavy baking sheet, toss all of the vegetables with the oil, salt, pepper, and dried herbs to coat.
  • If you don’t have a large baking sheet, transfer half of the vegetable mixture to another heavy baking sheet and arrange evenly over the baking sheets.
  • Bake until the carrots are tender and the vegetables begin to brown, stirring after 10 minutes, bake for 10 more minutes (20 minutes total).
  • While the vegetables are roasting, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, tender but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.
  • Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
  • In a large bowl or the pot where you cooked the pasta, toss the vegetable mixtures with the pasta and add the 1 cup of reserved pasta water.
  • Season the pasta with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and serve immediately.
