A very fresh, healthy pasta dish that can be adapted to your own liking very easily. You could add chicken, shrimp, scallops, etc if you want a more substantial dish. The best part is the smell of the kitchen while you're roasting the ingredients. I got this recipe from a friend who got it from the cookbook 'Seriously Simple.'
