What You’ll Need:

  • 2 c brown rice chickpea or quinoa pasta
  • 1 summer squash any variety, quartered & sliced thin
  • 1 pint mushrooms any variety, sliced
  • 1 purple onion chopped

  • 1 5-7oz bag baby spinach
  • 1 5-7oz jar pesto*
  • OPTIONAL: crushed red pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400*
  • Spread veggies onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with about half of the pesto, salt & pepper & pop into the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil for the pasta (use a pot bigger than you need—you’ll need that water later!) & cook according to package instructions.
  • Place spinach in a large colander & set in the sink.
  • Drain cooked pasta SLOWLY over spinach to flash steam. Return spinach & pasta to pot & toss with remaining prepared pesto.
  • Divide pasta into (2) serving bowls. Top with roasted veggies & crushed red pepper if desired.
