Roasted Mediterranean vegetables are a sweet and healthy topping for pasta. Most supermarkets sell big bags of frozen Mediterranean vegetables which are great to keep in the freezer for when you need a quick, nutritious meal. Tzatziki may seem like an unusual addition to pasta, but it really complements the charred Mediterranean vegetables and acts as a creamy sauce forthe penne. A refreshing blend of yogurt, mint, and cucumber, Tzatziki is really easy to make at home. This recipe is great for a quick midweek meal packed full of rich Mediterranean flavours. While the vegetables are roasting in the oil and garlic, you can prepare the tzatziki mix and boil the pasta, so that it will all come together really quickly when the vegetables have cooked. This isa healthy option for a summer’s evening and the cooling minty yogurt means youwon’t need to top it with cheese. The leftovers also taste great as a fillingpasta salad.
