I made this meal for my sister’s family, including her picky daughters. They both inhaled it and asked for more. Even though the roasting of the veggies takes a bit of time, it is well worth it for the delicious flavor it imparts, along with the crumbly chorizo. Delicious!
Preheat oven to 400. Layer tomatoes, red pepper, & onion in a single layer on a large roasting dish. Sprinkle evenly with garlic, Viva Italia blend.
In a small bowl, mix together tomato paste, vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper and spoon mixture over the vegetables.
Bake in a preheated oven for 1 to 1.5 hours or until the vegetables start to carmelize. About half way through, toss veggies and drizzle a little more oil and vinegar over the top and continue roasting.
When veggies are done, remove from oven and set aside.
Cook pasta as per directions. In a pan, saute olives and chorizo in a little olive oil, add the veggies and toss in cooked pasta until completely coated in sauce. Mix in cheese and serve. Serves 6
