Recipe by Wendys Kitchen

A flavourful vegetarian pasta dish.

Top Review by Sackville

Definitely full of flavour and very colourful, although the recipe was not clear on how much oil to use and we found the pasta a touch dry. Maybe next time adding a little extra butter or oil to the pasta before mixing it with the vegetables would be a good idea. We played around with the veggies a bit, using pumpkin, zucchini, onions, tomatoes, carrots and green peppers. We also used a dollop of pesto as we did not have fresh basil and served topped with grated cheese.
