Fancy a pasta that’s packed with veggies and loaded with flavour? Then this recipe for oven-roast vegetable fettuccine fits the bill. Our incredibly versatile Cape Herb & Spice Roast Veggie Seasoning is the star of the show!

- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -

  • 1 medium butternut, peeled and cut into 2cm dice
  • 3 smallish red onions, peeled and quartered
  • 1 red pepper, cut into 2cm dice
  • 1 yellow pepper, cut into 2cm dice
  • 200g punnet of cherry tomatoes
  • 2 Aubergines, cut into 2cm dice
  • 10 spears of tender stem broccoli
  • Cape Herb & Spice Veggie Seasoning ROAST
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 plump garlic cloves, smashed open with the side of a chef’s knife
  • 2 red chillies, sliced in half lengthways
  • large handful of parsley (a 20g punnet), finely chopped
  • 3 wheels feta
  • 500g packet of fettuccini, cooked in plenty of salted water until al dente

- METHOD -

Preheat the oven to 200˚C and line two large baking trays with baking paper.

Divide the vegetables between the two trays (if you use only one tray it will be overloaded and the veggies will steam instead of carmelise.) Pour half the olive oil over the veggies and toss to ensure they are thoroughly coated. Now sprinkle veggies very generously with Cape Herb & Spice Roast Veggie Seasoning. Place trays of vegetables in a hot oven and roast until cooked through. (Cook’s note: 2cm diced veggies should roast in 20-25 minutes. The broccoli will cook faster, so check it after 10-15 minutes and remove when done).

While the veggies are roasting, make a fragrant chilli-garlic oil for the pasta. Place half a cup of olive oil in a small saucepan along with the garlic and chilli. Allow to infuse over low heat for a few minutes, taking care not to burn the garlic. Remove flavoured oil from heat and set aside to continue infusing. Remove garlic and chilli and pour flavoured oil over cooked fettuccine.

Scatter over the parsley and toss to ensure the pasta is thoroughly coated. Tumble in roast veggies and crumble over feta.
