Roasting the veggies makes this unique from any other Primavera. This is truly TO DIE FOR! My take on a Giada de Laurentiis dish. I've tweaked it quite a bit. I have also tossed about 2 cups of rotisserie chicken in with the veggies and also used tortellini instead of the bowtie pasta. (I also add mushrooms when DH isn't home!) Anyway, it's a very easy recipe to play around with! Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. On 1 cookie sheet toss all the veggies in olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper until well coated. Transfer half veggies onto another cookie sheet. Spread veggies into an even layer on both pans.
  2. Roast at 450 degrees for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes.
  3. Toss hot pasta with butter. Then add veggies to the pasta. Use reserved pasta water to combine ingredients if necessary (sometimes I just don't need to add it -- ).
  4. Sprinkle with parm cheese, adding more salt and pepper to taste if need!
