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.
