Expert Tips:

You can use a variety of vegetables, depending on your preference. Make sure the total amount of grilled vegetables equals about 4 cups. If you prefer to try a different pasta, go ahead and experiment. We recommend cheese- or meat-filled tortellini or fettuccine.
Fresh doesn’t get much better than this! Full of garden goodies, this pasta is perfect served with a light salad, warm breadsticks and an icy sorbet for dessert.
