Spinach Pasta with Roasted Broccoli & Bell Pepper

This looks amazing! I especially love all of the colors. I bet Asiago would be another great option. And in the side salad, the Sharp Asiago sounds great. I guess I really want asiago cheese! Can’t wait to make for holiday dinner.


Spinach Pasta with Roasted Broccoli & Bell Pepper

This healthy vegetarian pasta features loads of spinach and roasted vegetables tossed with light balsamic sauce! Feel free to change up the vegetables or skip them completely for a simple, hearty spinach pasta recipe. Recipe is easily vegan and gluten free (see notes). Serve with a green side salad for a complete meal. Recipe yields 4 large or 6 more modest portions.

INGREDIENTS
Roasted vegetables

  • 1 large bunch of broccoli (about 1 ½ pounds), florets removed and sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into 1-inch squares
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt

Spinach pasta

  • 8 ounces DeLallo Whole Wheat Linguine or spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 shallot bulb, sliced very thin (about ½ cup, sliced)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 12 ounces baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
  • Optional: 1 ounce finely grated Parmesan cheese* (about ¾ cup, grated), plus extra for garnishing
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. To prepare the roasted vegetables (optional, skip for a more simple spinach pasta): Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Transfer the sliced broccoli florets and bell pepper to the prepared baking sheet, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and toss until the vegetables are lightly coated in oil (add a little more olive oil if necessary). Sprinkle with salt, arrange the vegetables in an even layer and bake until the broccoli is tender and caramelized on the edges, tossing halfway, about 25 minutes.
  2. Once the vegetables are in the oven, bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook the pasta just until al dente, according to package directions. Before draining, carefully reserve about 1 cup of the pasta water. Drain and return the pasta to the pot.
