Roasted Veggies Pasta Recipe

This past weekend my daughter and I did the "Color Me Rad 5K" and had lots of fun!  My oldest is 5 and really wanted to do the race with me.  During the race they douse you in color, either colored cornstarch or dyed water.  You start out clean and end up crazy dirty.  I had colored powder everywhere!

This was the first time my daughter had done a 5K with me and she was really excited.  I must say she did awesome.  She only complained a little about being tired but she walked the whole thing and didn't have to take a break.  We were almost the last ones to finish..but in the end it was all pretty RAD!

After a race like that a yummy dinner is necessary!  I was watching my favorite TV cooking show, "Ten Dollar Dinners" and Melissa whipped up this awesome looking dish.  I had to give it a try!

You will need Grape Tomatoes, Keilbasa, Zucchini, Mushrooms, Sweet Onion, Bell Pepper, Pasta, and Chicken Broth.
Chop your veggies into big chunks, I didn't even chop up the Mushrooms..just roasted those babies whole.  Place everything but the Tomatoes on a baking sheet.  Add a bit of Olive Oil, Salt, and Pepper to the veggies and toss well.  Roast for about 15 minutes.

Give the veggies a good stir then add Olive Oil, Salt, and Pepper to the Tomatoes and add them the baking sheet.  Roast another 15 minutes until everything is tender and lovely.

Meanwhile cook the Keilbasa in a pan until it is nice and browned.  The browned bits give this some crazy good flavor.  When the Veggies are cool enough give them a rough chop.  Add the Veggies and Chicken Broth in with the Keilbasa and let it cook together for about ten minutes.

Cook some noodles to al dente, top with the sauce, add a bit of Parmesan Cheese to the top and Enjoy!
