Roasted Vegetable and Chicken Pesto Penne

 School is back in officially back in session. We’re on our second week.

With all the teens activities and then my own projects and work, I feel like I’m pulled twenty directions and I hardly have time to take a breath.

Let alone cook a healthy meal.

This means I have to find quick and easy ways to put a healthy, yet hearty meal on the table for 5 busy teenagers. It’s not always easy.

In the meantime, my garden is overflowing and vegetables are pouring in at a rapid rate. I can’t keep up and my refrigerator reflects that.

On the second night of school, I thought maybe I’d use up whatever I could get into a meal. This actually meant using up a whole  bunch of tomatoes, two zucchini, and half an onion.

We made a salad to go with it, just so I could use up some more and then whipped up a homemade salad dressing which is coming to the blog soon.

    1. Me too Renee. I’ll often toss some on a pan with olive oil, salt and pepper, roast them and just eat them that way…. I was happy with the wonderful flavors in the pasta with the roasted veggies. Thanks!

  1. Oh yes that’s my kind of weeknight meal pasta dish Nicole! A nice time saver and super delicious, no doubt. =)

  2. Yum, this is my kind of meal! I make something similar to this at least one a week – use up what’s in the fridge pasta night!
