This is a great idea for a simple dinner.
Not all recipes need long lists of ingredients to be good. Sometimes you just need to be inspired by a good idea, or reminded of something that you’ve made before. This Roasted Vegetable Pasta is one of those recipes. Just a simple, easy, delicious idea.
I find that my favorite recipes are ones that are simple, use quality ingredients, and are then combined to make a delicious dish. When I see a photo of a dish that looks amazing, then review the recipe and see that it is very easy, my eyes light up and it is quite likely a recipe that I will try soon. Or, maybe I’m just inspired by the idea of the recipe and can then just easily switch it up to suit my tastes.
The critical quality ingredient here is the cheese. For the best tasting dish, use freshly grated, quality cheese. I love romano cheese and only buy Locatelli Romano, and yes, I can tell the difference between brands. If you prefer parmesan, then use Parmegiano Reggiano. I happen to enjoy the stronger and saltier taste of romano depending upon how I’m using it, but use whatever you like best.
I have another version of this recipe that has a few more ingredients that I will save for another post. For today, we’re keeping it simple.
