Roasted Vegetable Pasta | Recipe and Stepwise Pictures to make a Roasted Vegetable Pasta

Roasted Vegetable Pasta

Hi Supermoms,

Pasta is a big favourite at home. I make pasta at least once a week. It is really exciting to try different pasta recipes. I have been wanting to try the roasted vegetable pasta for quite some time. I had the experience of watching my friend Lena cook a roasted vegetable pasta in brown butter and I really enjoyed the taste. 

My oven was giving me some trouble and I had not been using it often. Recently, the problem got fixed and I was so excited to try out the roasted vegetable pasta. It is a great way to add vegetables like beetroot and yellow pumpkin into a pasta. 

Frying mint leaves in ghee and adding crumbled paneer/cottage cheese makes this pasta even more tasty. If you like your pasta to have some sauce and do not prefer to have it dry, you can grind half of the roasted vegetables and make a sauce. 

Roasting the vegetables takes about  forty minutes to an hour. So plan your meal preparation accordingly. I have used penne pasta but you can make this recipe using your choice of pasta.
