Campanelle with Roasted Vegetables and Marinara

Campanelle with Roasted Vegetables and Marinara

We were having friends over for dinner. I wanted to serve something simple, healthy and hearty. Since I loved the Roasted Garlic and Basil Marinara so much, I decided to make that again and mix it with campanelle pasta and roasted vegetables. We served this dish with a tossed green salad and freshly baked bread. A delicious dinner that we all loved, including the kids.

Campanelle with Roasted Vegetables and Marinara:
Recipe and photos by For the Love of
  • Olive oil
  • 10 spears of asparagus, ends trimmed, cut into thirds
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 8 oz button mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 small red onion, quartered
  • 2-3 red and yellow baby bell peppers, sliced
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic (keep skins on for roasting)
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Dried basil, to taste
  • 1 lb campanele pasta
  • Roasted Garlic and Basil Marinara
  • Asiago, grated
  • Fresh basil, chopped

Campanelle with Roasted Vegetables and MarinaraPrepare the Roasted Garlic and Basil Marinara then let it simmer.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil (for easy clean up) then coat with cooking spray. Place the onions, mushrooms, bell pepper and garlic (keep the skins on so they don’t burn while roasting) on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with dried basil, sea salt and pepper to taste. Place in the oven and roast for 20 minutes.

Campanelle with Roasted Vegetables and MarinaraAfter the veggies have roasted for 20 minutes, place the asparagus and zucchini on the baking sheet, drizzle with a bit more oil and re-season with a bit more basil, salt and pepper. Roast for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. Once the garlic has cooled, carefully remove the skins and slice then return to the rest of the veggies.

Campanelle with Roasted Vegetables and MarinaraPrepare the campanelle per instructions. Grate the asiago and chop the fresh basil.

Campanelle with Roasted Vegetables and MarinaraOnce the pasta is cooked, add the marinara to the pasta until evenly coated. Add the roasted veggies and fresh basil then mix gently; top with asiago. Enjoy.
