You’re in for a treat.
This is the perfect combination of creamy and delectable, all rolled into a one dish meal. The way that the roasted vegetables mush-up (I don’t think that is the correct term, but go with it), makes the pasta so creamy…without the fat!
It gets even better, too. The hardest part of making this amazing pasta dish is prepping the vegetables….nothing like a little arm workout while you make an autumn pasta dish.
