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.

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