- 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
- 4 cloves minced garlic
- 2 cups chopped broccoli
- 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into think strips
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon dried Italian herbs
or herbs De Provence
- 1 pound linguine
- 15 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Preheat the oven to 45 degrees F. On a heavy baking sheet, toss all of the vegetables with the oil, salt, pepper, and dried herbs to coat. Transfer half of the vegetable mixture to another large baking sheet and arrange evenly. Bake 20 minutes until the vegetables begin to brown, stirring after the first 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, tender but still firm to the bite. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Toss the pasta with the vegetable mixture in a large bowl to combine. Toss with the cherry tomatoes and enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten. Season the pasta with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and serve immediately.
