Tomato Pesto Veggie Pasta

I love to make this pasta when I have veggies to use up. It is a very fresh and light pasta dish full of flavor and healthy ingredients. Usually the ingredients depend on what I have on hand but the roasted peppers are an absolute must!

I think it is super important to 'eat the rainbow' because meals should be full of color and visually appealing. I believe that the more natural color a dish has from the ingredients, the better it is for you. This bowl may be full of carbs but it is a clean recipe with real ingredients. I mean, who doesn't love a big bowl of pasta?

This is another perfect meal prep idea and can even be served cold or mixed into a salad for lunch or dinner.
