Roasted Veggie and Smoked Gouda Pasta

Nov 6, 2013

Today I am coming at you with another awesome vegetarian meal. We are on week two of meatless Mondays and I am loving it. The hubs not so much.  I really liked this pasta, it was filled with all my favorite veggies and loaded with smoked Gouda.  Plus you can make it ahead of time and just pop it in your oven.  It makes a huge dish you could easily split this in half and take half to a friend.   You could make this with any veggies you have on hand but I like the combo of the veggies below.  Load up on the cheese and Enjoy!

adapted from How Sweet Eats


1/2 orange bell pepper chopped
1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 cups broccoli florets, chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/2 pound brussel sprouts, stems removed and sliced
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 pound pasta shells, cooked (I used shells but any pasta would work)
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
8 ounces smoked gouda cheese, freshly grated (one round of smoked Gouda)
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2- 1 cup heavy cream
freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese for topping


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Place the chopped peppers, sweet potato, broccoli, onion, brussels,
mushrooms and garlic cloves on a nonstick baking sheet. Drizzle the
veggies with the olive oil and honey. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper and then give them a
thorough toss. Roast the veggies for 25 to 30 minutes, tossing them once
halfway through. I cook the pasta while the veggies are roasting.
Drain pasta and then toss with heavy cream and 1/2 smoked Gouda and Parmesan cheese.  Mix together.
Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Add the pasta and half
of the veggies, then spoon half of the diced tomatoes over top. Add half
of the grated cheese, then layer again with the remaining pasta,
veggies, diced tomatoes and cheese. Finish the top off with a sprinkling
of breadcrumbs. Bake the pasta for 25 to 30 minutes, until the cheese
is golden and bubbly on top. Serve with extra cheese for grating on top.

This stays great in the fridge for 4 to 5 days – it’s an awesome make ahead meal.
