Penne with Roasted Vegetables
Penne has enough heft to hold its own when combined with chunky ingredients. Paired with caramelized roasted veggies, it makes a filling, nutritious meal.
Preheat the oven to 400°F
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
In a large bowl, toss the vegetables with the olive oil, then spread them out on the baking sheet.
Sprinkle the vegetables with the salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder and bake just until fork-tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring a large stockpot of water to a boil over high heat and cook the penne according to the package instructions until al dente (still slightly firm). Drain but do not rinse.
Place ½ cup of the roasted vegetables and the wine or stock in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Place the purée in a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the pasta and cook, stirring, just until heated through.
Serve the pasta and sauce topped with the roasted vegetables. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

I had just had a stress induced heart attack at age 58/female. I don't smoke or drink.
I have lost 30 lbs following these recipes and feel better than ever. Simple to follow and delicious!
While the obvious chapters organize the book - breakfast, lunch, dinner etc - it also provides some sample daily menu plans, and includes links to those recipes later in the book. In that way, the book allows you a couple different ways to get started along with lots of different combinations and suggestions. The recipes have few ingredients that don't require a lot of shopping or buying ingredients you'll never use again, and are easy to follow regardless of your cooking skills.
I must include however, that we do tend to like dishes very tasty, so I add a few extra sprinkles of the spices. ENJOY.
