Why You’ll Love It

Ever made a meal that turned out to be an accident? I do it all the time. Roasted Veggie Pasta started out as roasted veggies…but turned into something grander when I added angel hair pasta and parmesan cheese in my favorite cast iron skillet. (ad)

Roasted vegetables could stand alone as a meal without adding anything else. They’re packed full of flavor…and oh so good for you. But, when you add them to pasta and parmesan, you get a vegetable pasta recipe like no other.

Ingredients

For this veggie pasta recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients. Quantities are listed in the recipe card.

  • carrots, onion, cherry tomatoes, fresh broccoli
  • garlic salt, black pepper, olive oil
  • butter, half and half cream, parmesan cheese
  • angel hair pasta, teriyaki sauce

How to Make Roasted Veggie Pasta

To make roasted vegetable pasta, you simply get out your sheet pan, cut up your favorite veggies, season them with garlic salt & pepper, drizzle with olive oil, and roast in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

I bet you’ll never steam veggies again after you taste how the flavors pop after roasting.

While the vegetables are doing their thing in the oven, melt 1/2 stick butter in a cast iron skillet, (ad) then add parmesan cheese and cream. Stir until melted completely. Season with a little pepper. Add boiled angel hair pasta and give it a stir.

Now, it’s time to add the roasted veggies. You’ll thank me for this, I promise!

Variations

For an extra burst of flavor, I threw in some teriyaki sauce and a handful of rotisserie chicken. But, you can make this dish totally vegetarian if you wish.

In fact, you could even leave out the grated parmesan cheese and cream…but you’d be missing out on something pretty special.

This is one of those pasta recipes that you can add fresh herbs to and it turns it into something spectacular! Try adding fresh basil, red pepper flakes and dried thyme to the mix. It tastes amazing!

Recipe FAQS

What other veggies can be added to this dish?

Actually, any vegetable would taste great in this pasta recipe. Try using asparagus, marinated artichokes, red onion and a dash of lemon juice. Or, add sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese to the mix!

Why do you roast vegetables before adding them to the sauce?

Roasting vegetables in the oven brings out their flavor and adds caramelization which takes them over the top!

What’s the secret to roasting vegetables?

The main secret to perfect roasted veggies is to add a high heat oil (like olive oil) and season them well. Using garlic salt and pepper is a great option, but you can also add dried herbs like oregano to the mix.
