Roasted Vegetable Penne Recipe

The vegetables in this pasta dish are roasted, making them vibrant and flavorful. This dish can be eaten without a sauce. Eaten this way, it tastes fresh and savory.

If a few extra calories do not scare you and you prefer sauce over your pasta, white sauce is the way to go. Below the recipe you will find a link to a white sauce recipe, as well as a suggestion on how to flavor it for this pasta.

If you wish to enjoy a glass of wine with your penne, try pairing this with New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

Add a Little Sauce

While this dish tastes great as is, it also pairs well with a white sauce. The sauce used in the picture to the right is a standard bechamel sauce (2 T butter, 2 T flour, 1 C milk), with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a large pinch of each black pepper, salt, and cayenne pepper.
