Pasta with roasts recipe

It’s been a while since I’ve had pasta and, since I usually have it with bolognese sauce, I decided to try something different.



Serves: 4
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes


For the roasts:

  • 2 medium potatoes, diced
  • 4 salad tomatoes, diced
  • 4 bell peppers, diced
  • 2 medium courgettes, diced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • handful rosemary

For the pasta:

  • 300g pasta
  • juice of 1 lemon

You’ll also need:

  • 4 tbsp sunflower seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6.
  2. Prepare the potatoes and place on a baking tray. Drizzle over some olive oil and sprinkle over some rosemary.
  3. Place in the oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Prepare the rest of the veggies and place on the baking tray. Drizzle over some olive oil and sprinkle over some more rosemary.
  5. Place in the over for another 20 minutes, turning half way.
  6. Meanwhile, pour 1l boiling water into a saucepan. Add the pasta and simmer for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and transfer into a bowl. Drizzle over the lemon juice and mix well.
  8. Once the roasts are cooked, stir into the pasta, add the sunflower seeds and then serve.
