Roasted Vegetable Pasta

Don’t ask me how I’ve done it, but I’ve been without an oven for over one week. While the urge to back cookies is sky high, all I can think about is this roasted vegetable pasta. It was one of the last dishes I made at our first house.

Some of you may not like brussel sprouts, but I happen to love them. Also, I’m thrilled to announce that Liam loves them too. Weee!
