Simple Roasted Mushroom + Tomato Pasta

Even though I love to cook, I am always on the hunt for easy weeknight recipes.  

I get bored easily cooking the same meals over and over [and eating the same meals over and over], so I often get sucked into the black hole that is Pinterest searching "easy weeknight meals".  

Or, my absolute favorite, diving into my cookbooks while sitting on the couch, rummaging for a hidden gem that I may have missed in my 500 previous passes.  

This recipe defies the rules of "Meredith logic" that I defined above.  I love this Roasted Mushroom + Tomato Pasta and happily make it [and eat it] several times a month.  

And anything I love that much needs to be shared with you!  

This a a great meatless option that is simple and light enough to eat for lunch and elegant enough for dinner.  We aren't vegetarians around here, but appreciate the value of going meatless a few times a week.  The beauty of this recipe is that the vegetables can be easily swapped for whatever you have on hand.  



1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/4 c white wine

1 c frozen green peas, thawed

1/4 c fresh basil, chopped

1/4 c shredded parmesan

8 oz uncooked tube shaped pasta such as rigatoni, ziti or penne

8 oz baby portobello mushrooms, sliced

2 c grape tomatoes

1 red onion, sliced

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.  Cook pasta according to package directions.

Combine mushrooms and next 5 ingredients (through black pepper), tossing well to coat.Arrange mushroom mixture in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan.  

Bake for 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and flip vegetables over.  Drizzle evenly with white wine.  Bake an additional 7 minutes or until veggies are tender and lightly browned.  

Combine pasta, veggies, peas.  Top with basil and parmesan.

A colorful garden mix of deep-roasted mushrooms, tomatoes, peas, and onions tossed with pasta and parmesan...this recipe is sure to become a staple!
