  • Toss zucchini, bell pepper and onion with 1 tablespoon oil in a large roasting pan or a large baking sheet with sides. Season with salt and pepper. Roast the vegetables, stirring every 5 minutes, until tender and browned, 10 to 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, basil, garlic and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Cook pasta until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to the bowl with the tomatoes. Add the roasted vegetables and toss well. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve, passing feta cheese separately.

Wow! This is great! I normally dislike and roast to death my vegetables so didn't expect the recipe to taste as good as it does. I think the vegetables still caramelize. The pasta and vegetables have a "sauce" made of only tomatoes and garlic but it tasted just fine. EW makes some great recipes and this is one of them. Will make again!! Read More

Perfect Dinner I made this meal for a game night and my guests loved it even though they aren't vegetarian. The recipe makes 4 servings. We were skeptical that we would need to add pasta sauce but it was perfect without it. We will definitely make this again. I already bought the ingredients. Pros: So much flavor Read More

Very Easy This only took about 30 minutes from start to finish to make the ingredients were cheap and I was able to get my dad to eat a vegetarian meal and like it! I'm going to make this as many times as my family will eat it! Read More

This recipe was outstanding! My whole family thought it was fantastic. I multiplied the recipe by 3 or 4 and sprinkled pignoli nuts on top. It would be a great dish for company because it's sophisticated enough and yet easy to make. (You could cut the vegetables for roasting ahead of time then cut the tomatoes for the sauce as they roasted.) Just a note it took me a little longer--30 minutes--not the 10 or 20 indicated in the recipe to roast the veggies. Delicious! Leslie Pittsburgh PA Read More

Yummy! Very light healthy pasta. The whole family enjoyed it. I substituted regular spaghetti noodles and used reduced fat feta. Very tasty. Jennifer Hoff Sacramento CA Read More

I added balsamic vinegar to the roasted veggies and subbed fresh parmesan for the feta because that's what I had on hand. Very simple and tasty dish! Read More

I made this tonight and we all loved it. I had some eggplant and added that. I also used a light alfredo sauce I make with parmesan and neufchatel cheese. I ladled that over each person's pasta so that I could control the portions. It was fantastic! I loved the fresh tomatoes and raw garlic and basil. I will definitely make this many times! Thank you.

The roasted vegetables add so much flavour that you don't need to gussy up the dish with lots of cheese. I did saute tomatoes and garlic a bit because didn't want to overpower the dish with raw garlic. Very good. Read More
