Hey all! Recently I posted a pic on Instagram of a super-simple, rustic roasted vegetable pasta – in fact, I was worried it might be too simple to count as a “real” recipe. But the response was so overwhelmingly positive that I decided to share the recipe for Pasta with Rustic Roasted Vegetables!

To be honest, “simple and easy” is the name of the game right now when it comes to my cooking repertoire: I’ve been so busy with planning out my online courses that I haven’t had much time to cook. But when things get stressful, a balanced and sugar-free diet becomes even more important to me – because it’s times like these when I really need to be in top form, mentally and physically.

And that’s why I concentrate on simple, stress-free dishes when time is tight. The veggies do need 40 minutes to roast, but it’s time I can spend focused on other things (like getting in a little bit of much-needed relaxation). The sauce and pasta are ready in minutes.

The recipe is super versatile, of course, so have fun experimenting with other kinds of roasted veggies!

Here’s the recipe:
