Baked Roasted Vegetable Pasta is a flavorful blend of oven roasted veggies tossed with cooked pasta and tangy tomato basil/marinara sauce. These are then layered with cheese and baked until cheese melts and is golden brown. Baking provides this dish a nice crusty top layer which takes the taste and texture of this dish to the next level and so highly recommend it. I prefer to roast the veggies in the oven as that way when am cooking my sauce and boiling my pasta my veggies are cooking too. But you could also roast them on a pan over a stove-top. I like using dry herbs with the veggies as the chances of these burning (in the oven) are less.
