Trevor’s Roasted Vegetable Pasta

Mains, Vegetarian
pasta, vegetables



  • 2 – 3 cups of pasta – penne, rigatoni work best
  • 4 large mushrooms
  • 8 cherry tomatoes or 1 large tomato
  • 6 pitted black olives (optional)
  • 2 shallots or ½ white / red onion
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 2 – 3 tbsp. of olive / canola oil
  • 2 tsp. Tomato Ladies Italian Seasoning
  • ½ tsp. salt or Seasoning Salt
  • 1 large clove of garlic (minced)
  • 3 tbsp. of margarine or butter
  • Pepper
  • Cheese, finely grated – your choice, mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan




  1. Preheat Oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut vegetables into bite sized chunks.  Place in a mixing bowl and drizzle with oil.  Add Italian seasoning & salt.  Gently mix with spoon so to coat all of the vegetables with oil and seasoning.
  3. Arrange vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place in the oven and roast for 12 – 15 minutes.  Be sure to shake the baking pan or turn the vegetables 2 – 4 times during the cooking process.  A little charring is ok.
  4. While the vegetables are roasting, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the pasta and cook until just tender (usually 7-9 minutes).*
  5. Heat margarine with minced garlic (Micro wave works well for this step)
  6. Drain the pasta and return to the pot, toss with margarine.
  7. Add vegetables to the pasta.  Lightly toss, top with parmesan cheese if using and a sprinkling of pepper.  Serve immediately.


*Aim to have the pasta and vegetables ready at pretty much the same time.


Alternate method for Roasting Veggies – the BBQ:


Light BBQ (Direct Heat, Med. Low)  Place vegetables in a grill basket and roast for 12 – 15 minutes.  Be sure to turn vegetables in the basket every 3 – 5 minutes.  It is not recommended to put the vegetables directly on the grill and remember a little charring is ok.

 Another option for you to try:


Roasted Vegetable Pasta with Tomato Sauce


Just omit the margarine in step 5 and add 1 cup of Tomato Sauce along with the vegetables to the pasta, as in step 6 above. Heat through and serve.
