  • 1 purple onion cut into halves then fourths
  • 1 yellow squash halved lengthwise
  • 1 zucchini halved lengthwise
  • 1 red bell pepper cut in half
  • 10 stalks Asparagus
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1 package sweet Italian sausage (5 links)
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 12 ounces whole-grain penne
  • Freshly grated Parmesan


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
  • In a Ziplock Baggie toss all the vegetables, except the tomatoes and season with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, and pepper, to taste.
  • Arrange the veggies on a baking sheet and roast, until caramelized, about 30 minutes, turning vegetables halfway through the cooking time.
  • In a small bowl, add the tomatoes and the remaining olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and add to the baking sheet, at the halfway point of cooking.   Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package instructions and drain.
  • While the pasta and veggies are cooking remove sausage meat from the casing. Saute the sausage in a large skillet or wok over medium heat until cooked through
  • Turn up the heat and deglaze the skillet or wok with white wine
  • Once the vegetables are cooked, cool slightly, then coarsely chop all the veggies except the tomatoes.
  • Add the vegetables and any pan juices to the sausage in the skillet or wok. Toss in the cooked penne, season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add 1/2 cup of the parmesan cheese. Toss gently to combine and serve topped with additional parmesan cheese
