This recipe is bright, creamy, salty, and slightly burned and crunchy. It's a delightful sensory experience, and also kind-of healthy, if you believe in that sort of thing! Also, this recipe would make a great paleo dinner with some spiraled veggie pasta.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Combine broccoli, red bell peppers, and yellow onion in a large bowl. Add olive oil, juice of 2 limes, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; toss to coat. Spread vegetables onto a baking sheet.
  3. Roast vegetables, stirring 1 or 2 times, in the preheated oven until edges begin to blacken, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly.
  4. Fill a large pot with water and 1/2 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil. Stir in penne and return to a boil. Cook pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain.
  5. Blend avocados, juice of 2 limes, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a food processor or blender until sauce is smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Add 1/2 cup chopped cilantro and pulse until just incorporated.
  6. Gently toss pasta, roasted vegetables, and sauce together in a large bowl. Garnish with cherry tomatoes, cilantro stems, sea salt, and black pepper.

Made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. My anti Vegan husband actually went back for seconds. Side note, unless you're making this for a dinner party, or you have a Brady Bunch sized family, 1/2 this one. 2 boxes of pasta make a lot of leftovers.
