Sometimes after a long day of work, Chris and I don’t even want to think about cooking– we would rather make something quick and easy (but still tasty) so that we can focus more on enjoying our time together.

This is a recipe that we make almost weekly because it helps us do just that. It’s fuss-free, requires minimal effort, and can be customized based on what we have in the fridge.

Here is what you will need for this recipe:

  • Pasta Sauce: Our favorite is Barilla’s Roasted Garlic Sauce. It’s packed with flavor (garlic anything and I am innnn). I swear I could put this stuff on anything and it will taste good. Plus, I love the fact that this sauce has no sugar added, no preservatives and is non-GMO Project Verified (refer to the nutrition label for more details)
  • Pasta: You can really use any pasta shape of choice, we like to use the Barilla Rotini Pasta. 
  • Vegetables: We added in zucchini, bell peppers, mushrooms and spinach because it is what we had at home, so feel free to add in whatever you have on hand! Things that would also work well in this recipe are yellow squash, carrots, eggplant and kale!
  • Vegan sausages: We like to throw in a vegan protein if possible. Coincidentally, we had some vegan sausage that needed to be used up, so we diced it up and threw it in.
  • Fresh basil: Brightens up all of the flavors in this dish!
  • Vegan Parmesan: Optional but recommended! It just adds a touch of salt and richness that we think rounds out the dish. 

The best part about this recipe is that there isn’t much effort involved. Place all of your veggies into the oven while you are waiting for your water to come to a boil, cook your pasta and then combine the pasta, red sauce and roasted veggies at the end. Boom, done!
