Roasted Veggies Make Linguine New
Spaghetti and meatballs is always a quick and easy dinner choice, but instead of that old standard, why not use fresh vegetables and shrimp to make a classic pasta dish new and exciting?
My family loves pasta. It doesn't matter if it's ravioli, tortellini or classic spaghetti and meatballs. As much as we love pasta, though, the same old spaghetti with meat sauce gets dull pretty quickly. Since I know pasta is one of the few things my son will eat without hesitation, I'm always looking for new ways to spice up the classic dish. Parenting magazine provided the perfect answer. They suggested roasting fresh vegetables and adding some shrimp.
I love roasting tomatoes and peppers, but I'd never thought of roasting them and then adding them to cooked pasta. What a revelation! The roasted veggies gave the pasta a light, fresh taste I hadn't had since I don't know when. This recipe made me wonder what other roasted veggies would be just as tasty when added to angel hair or linguine. Do you have a favorite vegetable? Well, the next time you're in the mood for spaghetti or linguine, why not roast them up and throw them on top. It's a great alternative to those heavy sauces.
