Easy Roasted Vegetable Pasta – Slimming Style 

Vegetable Pasta, what an amazing staple recipe to have in your repotaroire

It’s so easy and simple to change up.

Use different veggies if you like  maybe add courgettes/ zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli – anything really  

It’s also super healthy.

When you roast the vegetables in the oven it dramatically intensifies the flavour and let me tell you it’s simply busting with flavours!! 

Colours of your Vegetable Pasta

Something else that they say is very important for all the nutrients.

Just look at all those fresh colours!! 

 

What Pasta should you use for your Vegetable Bake?

I’m a massive lover of Macaroni, you probably have noticed already.

However you can replace with most types, I would suggest penne or the spiral shaped myself 

It’s so easy! Other Ideas 

So basically all you do is roast your vegetables in the oven, add your cooked pasta, top with grated cheese and basil! Done! 

I also think it would be a great side to say sausages or a chicken breast – anything you like really! 

It can be served cold too – in a lunch box if you like!

Such a nice change from a soggy old sarnie! 

The Deets 

Everything is free!! Yes you heard it here first! 

You need to count 1 Healthy A – but this recipes is enough for 2 people as a main course 

So that’s 1/2 a healthy A per portion 

 

Pimped Vegetable Pasta (NOT VEGETARIAN)

Oh and if you want to add other things to your roasted vegetable pasta then just do it! Pimp it up – you so can! 

Here I added small <5% fat meatballs (free) and it was so delicious – I simply baked it all together 

I think it would also work really well with sliced bacon medallions, why not give it a try? Again free …. and something I will definitely do next time
