Have a jar of pasta sauce, a box of pasta and a loaf of plain crusty bread but want to make it a little more interesting (and veggiefied) tonight? This quick fix will have a tasty dinner on the table in 30 minutes.
This is a quick, one pan pasta dish. Roast your veggies, dump sauce over them and stir in cooked pasta. In less than an hour you’ll have a bubbly, browned dish, ready for your family or to share with a new mommy (Macaria : ).
This is a lovely spring dish, fresh with the tangy lemon juice and flavorful grilled veggies from the market. I didn’t know what a simple hit I had created the first time I threw this together for our supper until we lingered over the table, trying to leave leftovers for lunches the next day. You can certainly use boxed linguine for this recipe, but it is outstanding with fresh, light, pillowy homemade linguine (all you need is a rolling pin and a knife!). We made it again for our couples supper club (kids too) and everyone loved it, no leftovers were to be had.
Many times I make this soup after we have had a Roaster for supper and cut most of the meat off. In this case I bought a small fryer chicken just to make this soup for a friend and her family and saved some of the meat for a later meal. It made a huge pot, enough to feed their family of 4 with leftovers and some for our dinner as well.
