One bite of this Pasta and Beans recipe with Balsamic Roasted Veggies and you’ll want to make it all summer long!
Balsamic Roasted Veggies and Pasta
It’s made with roasted zucchini, yellow squash, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, red onion, mushrooms, peppers, and broccoli then tossed with beans and pesto. SO good, and picky husband approved! Pesto not your thing? Try this Summer Macaroni Salad instead! I also love this Summer Cavatelli with Corn, Tomatoes and Zucchini dish!
For the pasta, I used Delallo’s gluten-free fusilli, the best gluten-free pasta brand out there in my opinion! It has the perfect al dente texture when it’s cooked, it’s so good I use it all the time simply because I like the taste although none of use have issues with gluten. Of course, you could use whole wheat pasta instead if you prefer.

Are we not supposed to cook the beans?
A winner for sure! In our home, we like to count the colors of veggies we have in our meal and this recipe definitely includes a little bit of everything. I made it it per the directions with no alterations and I can’t think of anything I would change. Awesome meatless choice.
I made your instant pot risotto with garlic shrimp last night, which was delicious, and this pasta and veggie dish tonight. It was amazing! I don’t even like bell peppers but gobbled them up here. I made a few changes because I forgot to buy a red onion and wanted to use the whole 12 oz box of pasta. I served this with toasted bread to dip in olive oil and dukkah mix on the side and paired it with some white wine. It felt like spring in Tuscany 🙂
Glad you enjoyed it!
Loved this dish! Veggies were delicious, wish I doubled the amount
Amazing recipe and the smell of those vegetables roasting with the garlic, balsamic and Dijon- wow! Highly recommend making this dish but on a busy night you could even just make the roasted veg with the marinade and stop there. SO good!
Hi, this looks fantastic! I read reviews (balsamic veggies and white bean with pasta) and nobody seems to have made this without the pasta. Can this be done? Do I need to make any other changes? I would still add the pesto.Thank you!
We love this one! Even my five year old (minus the broccoli that is always a small pile). We do the same with doubling all the spices except the olive oil!
Does anyone know how many servings this is?
1 and 1/2 cups.
Few things we changed:
1) doubled up on dressing in step 3
2) turned down the oven to 410 and cut it 3 minutes early because the broccoli was burning
3) Had trouble finding Fusilli so we changed it with rainbow rotini
We ended up having two trays of veggies, so maybe we’re just using too much. Great recipe
