“This recipe is only a slight adaptation of Giada De Laurentis' Pasta Primavera, found here: I adapted this while teaching the 2013 cooking elective at my daughter's charter school. This is one of the recipes my 30 students will make while "visiting" Italy.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a roasting pan, toss all of the vegetables with the oil, salt, pepper, and dried herbs to coat. Bake about 20 minutes, stirring after the first 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, about 8 minutes. Remove about 1 cup of the cooking liquid, and set aside, then drain the pasta.
  4. In a large bowl, toss the pasta with the vegetable mixture. Toss in the cherry tomatoes and enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten.
  5. Season the pasta with salt and pepper, to taste, then sprinkle with the Parmesan and serve immediately.
