roasted veggie pasta in a cast iron skillet

Roasted Veggie Pasta

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. Ooh, la la.

Roasted veggies 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, the heavens open up and birds start singing! No kidding! 🙂

To make this dish, you simply whip 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. Wowza!

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

While those cuties are doing their thing in the oven, melt 1/2 stick butter in a cast iron skillet, 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!

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 parmesan and cream…but you’d be missing out on something pretty special.
