Ingredients

  • 1 box Dreamfields Rotini
  • 1 medium zucchini cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 medium yellow squash cut into approximately 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 1 small eggplant cut into approximately 1/4-inch slices
  • 6 medium asparagus stalks coarsely chopped
  • 1 small shallot chopped
  • Parmesan cheese grated (optional)

PESTO:

  • 2 cups fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/3 cup lightly salted, shelled pistachios
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions. Place pasta in large bowl; set aside.
  3. For pesto, place basil, cheese, pistachios, oil and garlic in food processor or blender container. Pulse until mixture forms a wet paste; set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, place zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant, asparagus and shallot on rimmed baking pan lined with aluminum foil. Add 3/4 of the pesto; toss to coat vegetables.
  5. Roast vegetables 45 minutes (stir every 15 minutes) or until softened and golden brown. Remove from oven. Toss vegetables with pasta.
  6. Add remaining pesto to pasta; toss to mix well. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired. Divide evenly among six bowls. Serve warm or at room temperature.
