Eat Healthy: Pasta Primavera A la Jenni

jenniFood 3 Comments

I started making this recipe when my family and I got fed up just eating just roasted vegetables for dinner. I thought I’d shake things up by adding pasta to it.

Traditional pasta primavera is cooked by sautéing the veggies then adding it to the pasta. I find that roasted vegetables taste better than sautéed ones. There’s a sweet and smoky flavor when you grill/bake them.

This is a great way to get the kiddos to eat their veggies! Not only is it flavorful, it’s pretty too! Beside, everyone loves pasta! Here are the steps to make this healthy meal.

Pasta Primavera A la Jenni


Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

Dried rosemary

Cayenne pepper (optional)

Sea salt


Seasonal vegetables

Whole wheat penne pasta

Garlic and chili flakes

Easy peasy:

Step 1: Boil water and cook the pasta. Be sure to salt the water. Once the pasta is cooked aldente, set it aside.

Step 2: In a mixing bowl, coat the vegetables with EVOO, salt, dried rosemary, cayenne, salt, and pepper

Step 3: Arrange the veggies on a baking sheet.

Step 4: Place the tray of vegetables under the grill. If you’re cooking for one, you can use an oven toaster to grill the veggies.

Grill the veggies till they are tender and slightly brown. It usually takes 15-17 minutes to cook.

Step 5: To make the sauce for the pasta, add EVOO to the heated pan. Add the garlic and chili flakes.

Step 6: Toss the pasta in the oil. You may add more salt and pepper to it if you wish.

Step 7: Top the pasta aolio with the roasted vegetables.


Serve with a smile! 😀
