(Family Features) Feeding a lot of people doesn't have to be daunting. A comforting one-dish meal is perfect for any occasion - whether you're throwing a casual get-together, having a housewarming party or hosting a family gathering.
A heaping platter of Roasted Vegetables with Rotini and Parsley-Rosemary Pesto will satisfy even the heartiest appetite, plus it's easy to make. Curly rotini pasta, tossed with a homemade pesto, lean chicken sausage and your choice of roasted vegetables is a crowd-pleaser - and makes an appetizing presentation.
A couple of things set this recipe apart. For one, preparing it with Dreamfields pasta provides added nutritional benefits. Made from durum wheat semolina, Dreamfields has the same taste and texture as traditional pasta, but with twice the fiber and fewer digestible carbohydrates (only five grams) per 1-cup cooked serving.
The unique pesto, made with parsley, rosemary and walnuts rather than the traditional basil and pine nuts is another stand-out in this dish. Simply puree all the ingredients in a food processor, toss with roasted veggies, sausage and pasta, and dinner is served.
