Baked Pasta with Roasted Vegetables

Pasta with Roasted Veggies

Thank goodness for those quick and easy pasta dinners using whatever is left over in my refrigerator. I cooked pasta, added tomato sauce and leftover roasted veggies from the night before, and combined them with some fresh basil, asiago and mozzarella cheese. I placed everything in the oven and 20 minutes later a meatless dinner was served. Feel free to substitute my vegetable choices for your favorites.

If you want to have this meal ready in 20 minutes like I did, you need to roast the vegetables and make the tomato sauce the day before or use your favorite store bought sauce.

Buen provecho!

This looks very tasty and fairly healthy depending on how cheese-happy you get. I tend to overdo it with cheese myself.
