One of my favorite dishes to make is one that does not take more than 30 minutes to pull together, and does not take much forethought. Sometimes, I just don't have the time to think about an elaborate or intricate dish, so I rely on the basics: vegetables, pasta, and jarred sauce. This 3 ingredient roasted vegetable pasta is going to solve a lot of family arguments over "what are we having for dinner tonight?" That I can absolutely guarantee!
The name of this recipe is exactly what the recipe is about: homemade roasted veggies, dried pasta, mixed together with your favorite jarred sauce. We are big pasta fans, which is probably why my blog is full of 'em. My cheesy pesto tortellini bake is my number one searched and make recipe on the blog, with my easy baked mac and creamy spinach pasta following after. No matter the reason to make these pasta recipes, you and your family are going to LOVE them and easily make them part of your rotation over and over again.
You can literally use any vegetable you like to eat on a regular basis or even use vegetables you're HOPING to eat more of. That's the beauty of this recipe, it's truly open for interpretation. I like to use brussel sprouts and cauliflower, maybe some broccoli, but here's a quick list of veggies you can definitely incorporate into this dish:
You can even sauté spinach or corn and peas and toss them in!
One of the reasons why I love this recipe as much as I do is because you can use virtually any pasta you have on hand. There's no rule that you must use a specific shape or type. If you have rotini, go for it. Rigatoni? Sure! Linguini? Perfect! I prefer short pasta (penne, rigatoni, or fusilli) for this as the shorter, grooved pasta tends to grab onto the sauce a little better, but any shape works!
Hear me out on this one. To make a really flavorful, delicious, traditional sauce takes a great deal of time, and sometimes, I have just 30 minutes to get dinner on the table. I like to have a few high quality jarred sauces in the cabinet for these types of occasions. Some of the brands I love include:
You can also use a plain can of crushed tomatoes seasoned with basil for this too, and jazz it up with some garlic powder, onion powder. The roasted veggies will give it more flavor too. A simple marinara works well also!
