Roasted Vegetable Pasta Salad

pasta salad

Here’s a little something I came up with for my BBQ this past weekend.  Many of my friends are vegetarians and ALL of my friends are healthy eaters.  I thought this would make a great side dish (or main dish for any who preferred it).

This also makes a great picnic or potluck dish as there is no mayonnaise so it can be left out of the fridge for a little bit.  Actually, it tastes better at room temperature.  Bonus is that it is easy, filling and the recipe yields A LOT!


  • 2, 12-16 oz boxes of tricolor rotelle pasta
  • 1, 16 oz package of fresh broccoli florets
  • 3-4 green zucchini
  • 3-4 yellow squash
  • shredded carrots
  • 1 pint of grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1, 8 oz can of small pitted black olives
  • 1, 12-16 oz container of crumbled feta cheese
  • Italian Dressing of your choice (I used Wishbone Robusto Italian)
  • Cayenne pepper to taste (optional)
