Roasted Tomato and Zucchini Pasta

The roasting is an extra step that makes a world of difference in this recipe. I didn't use as much oil in this as the recipe states - using cooking spray on the roasting pan and on the vegetables worked very well to replace much of it. From Everyday Food Magazine March/April 2003

This was very good, I loved it... I even ate two bowls of it. I used fettucine since I didn't have the others that were recommended and I added red pepper flakes. Very Good! Very healthy also.. :)

This is so delicious! Roasting the vegetables gives them great flavor! I used Janes Crazy Mixed Up Salt with the pepper in place of regular salt.
