    Hello:

    I am posting the recipe for Baked penne with Roasted vegetables. My sis forwarded this recipe from a website and I customised it to our taste.

    The portion given below would serve 6.

    Baked Penne with Roasted vegetables

    2 red peppers, cored and cut into 1-inch wide strips
    2 zucchini, quartered lengthwise and cut into 1-inch cubes
    2 summer squash, quartered lengthwise and cut into 1-inch cubes

    1 yellow onion, peeled and sliced into 1-inch strips
    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon salt, divided
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
    1 tablespoon dried Italian herb mix
    500 gms penne pasta
    3 cups five cheese sauce
    1/2 cup grated smoked mozzarella
    1 1/2 cups frozen peas, thawed
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan, plus 1/3 cup for topping
    2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces


    Preheat the oven to 225 degrees Celsius.


    On a baking sheet, toss the peppers, zucchini, squash, mushrooms, and onions with olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and dried herbs. Roast until tender, about 15 minutes.

    Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook for about 6 minutes. Since you will be cooking the pasta a second time in the oven, you want to make sure the inside is still hard. Drain in a colander.

    In a large bowl, toss the drained pasta with the roasted vegetables, Five Cheese sauce, cheeses, peas, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Using a wooden spoon, gently mix, until all the pasta is coated with the sauce and the ingredients are combined.
    Pour the pasta into a greased pan. Top with the remaining 1/3 cup Parmesan and butter pieces. Bake until top is golden and cheese melts, about 25 minutes.

    Prb.
