When cold, wet weather hits, there’s nothing more satisfying than sitting down to a generous bowl of pasta that’s warm, filling and packed with flavor.
This Easy Roasted Vegetable Pasta Recipe is full of roasted butternut squash, brussels sprouts, mushrooms, pumpkin seeds, and goat cheese.
Residing here in Colorado, one can tell that the enchanted chilly season is upon us by the crispness in the morning air, roaring golden aspens covering the mountain tops, and the evening warm mug of spiked apple cider resting on the fireplace. I’ve officially ordered all the cozy candles, unpacked my warmest sweaters, and I’ve been roasting every single vegetable I can get my hands on.
I’ve also been recipe testing a lot – helllooo Thanksgiving prep. With pumpkin-spice aroma filling the air, I’ll be on the hunt for quick and easy, less mess, healthy or healthy-ISH dinners that are still totally satisfying, delicious, and of course, cozy to pair with this enchanting season.
That’s why I’m completely obsessed with this Roasted Vegetable Pasta Recipe featuring the newest product to join the Cured edible lineup. Talk about a total showcase of prominent upfront savory and herbaceous notes to pair with any dish this fall!
If you’re not in the mood to spend your shorter evenings making your pasta from scratch, you can also make this recipe with dried gluten-free (or regular) pasta like I did. Use your favorite combination of wild mushrooms for earthy fall flavor, though cultivated mushrooms would also be delicious!
We are in the season of gatherings, so round up your loved ones to share a warm, generous, yet effortless bowl of goodness!
Happy Fall, friends!
