Inspired by hunger and what's in the garden, this is a quick and flexible dish.

The only change I made was I cooked my veggies on the stove top and added more balsamic vinegar

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!!

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

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!

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.

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.
