Roast peppers and roast tomatoes are a match made in heaven! In this recipe we’ve combined the two with garlic, olive oil, shallots, pasta, basil, broccoli and a little goats cheese for a simple vegetable pasta recipe. Roast pepper and roast tomato pasta needs a little time in the oven to bring out the best flavours of the vegetables – but the return is worth it! This is a fab vegetarian dinner that celebrates some of the best Summer ingredients.

Do you know what makes veggies better? Roasting them. You can’t argue with me on this one. You get caramelisation, added sweetness, more intense flavour and not to mention they go with just about anything. That includes pasta, which is what I have got for you right here; Slow Roast Pepper and Tomato Pasta.
The roasted veggies are kind the showstopper of this meal. And it’s not just peppers and tomatoes. Heres how it all works: we first layer shallots and garlic on the bottom of the roasting dish with salt, pepper, olive oil and a few sprigs of thyme. On top of that, we layer the peppers and tomatoes with a little bit more salt, pepper, olive oil and thyme. Pop it in the oven and let the magic happen. The juices released from the peppers and tomatoes fall to the bottom of the pan, they mix with the oil and they also kind braise the shallots and garlic, stopping them from burning. Those juices and oils also create an incredible little sauce to go with our pasta. Roasted veggies 🙌
For this meal we’ve mixed those roasted veggies in with some wholewheat pasta, broccoli, basil and goats cheese. And trust me when I say that it is SO good. But these roast veggies are pretty versatile. You could mix them in with any grains, add them to salads, maybe even blend it all into a soup with some veggie stock? So many options. I’m currently fantasising about thick slices of toasted sourdough with a layer of goats cheese and these roasted veggies on top *bites lip*.
While there are many things I love about this dish my favourite has to be the smell of roasting peppers, tomatoes, onions and garlic that wafts through the house. It is an absolute DREAAAMM. That, and it’s also super simple. Like, pop them in the oven and go about your day being domestic (or binge some netflix 🙋♀️) until they’re ready. Cook a bit of pasta and broccoli and mix it all together. Any leftovers are ideal for lunchboxes. Job done guys.
