INGREDIENTS

4 c. fresh vegetables, chopped (carrots, squash, bell pepper, onion, zucchini, mushrooms, etc.) 4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil salt and fresh ground pepper 2 c. cherry tomatoes, halved 16 oz. short dry pasta 1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

2. On a large baking sheet, toss the chopped vegetables with oil, salt, and pepper to coat. Bake until the vegetables are tender and beginning to brown, stirring after the first 10 minutes, about 20 minutes total.

3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente (tender but still firm to the bite) according to the package. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.

4. Toss the pasta with the vegetable mixture in a large bowl to combine. Add the cherry tomatoes and enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve immediately.
