Roasted Veggie Fall Pasta
I never get tired of being excited that it is Fall after a long hot Summer. I love the weather, the beautiful colors, the leaves, the food ... it's all on point and my favorite!
Fall means a new combination of flavors that create something magical on your plate. My family and I love roasted Brussels sprouts so much. We eat them at least 2-3 times a week in various ways. Right now, we are totally loving this easy fall inspired pasta dish, using the only pasta we eat: Tolerant Foods.
Tolerant Foods Red Lentil Pasta is filled with protein and fiber, tastes like "regular" pasta, has the same texture as pasta and is so much better for you… I can't even begin to stress that enough!
Let's jump into this recipe cause I'm hungry for it now, and we ate all the leftovers!
1.5 lbs Brussels sprouts (quartered) 3/4 to 1 lb butternut squash (cut into bite size cubes) 1 yellow onion (diced) 2-3 TB extra virgin olive oil (enough to cover veggies) 2 tb maple syrup Sea salt to taste pepper to taste 1/4 tsp sage, dried 1 box Tolerant Foods Red Lentil Penne Pasta
Directions: Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Wash & cut Brussels sprouts into quarters, and dice onions. Mix in a bowl. Add enough olive oil to coat all veggies. Add maple syrup and mix. Add salt & pepper to taste. Add dried sage & mix. Lay out veggies on a baking sheet.
Cut sweet potatoes and mix in bowl with a little olive oil to coat each bite. Spread veggies on a separate baking sheet. You could put all veggies on a large baking sheet. However, if one set is done before the other, its easiest to remove one of the baking sheets rather than remove some of the veggies from a shared baking sheet... just an option.
Put both veggie baking sheets in the oven for about 25-35 minutes or until you see some dark coloring on the Brussels sprouts.
While veggies are roasting, cook the Tolerant Foods Red Lentil Penne Pasta according to instructions on box. Strain pasta, saving 1/8 cup of starchy pasta water for pasta dish. Keep an eye on veggies.
Pour drained pasta back into the cooking pot, on medium - low heat, add your starchy pasta water, roasted veggies and stir. Taste and add more sea salt and pepper to taste. Once pasta water has evaporated, which will be quick, your pasta is ready to eat.
Serve in large bowl and be prepared for no leftovers.
