Roasted Asparagus, Mushroom, and Dried Tomatoes over Capellini

Share

Sometimes the simplest meals turn out to be the best. This pasta is one of those times.

Ian and I have a new little tradition. Now that the kids are old enough to be left  home alone, we spend our Saturday afternoons browsing the aisles of  Whole Foods. I know it probably sounds silly to some of you, but I look forward to this all week long. We do our weekly shopping and then have lunch. It’s just a fun afternoon.

A few weeks ago I spotted a salad in the deli. It was asparagus, portobello mushroom, and dried tomatoes in some type of vinaigrette, it was delicious, and of course I had to try and make it at home.

The firs time I made the veggies, we tossed them in olive oil and vinegar and popped em’ on the grill. {maybe you saw them if you follow along on instagram} …yes I know I’m addicted to taking pictures of my food

Oh my heavens were they good along side our steaks.

So good, that I could not wait to try them again, only this time I roasted them in the oven, and tossed them with some pasta.

Again, delicious and so unbelievably easy. Perfect for meatless Monday {or frankly any day of the week that you want dinner in  30 minutes}

Eat the veggies as they are, or toss them with pasta for an easy weeknight meal.

Either way you’re going to love them.
