Directions:

Seed bell peppers and cut into small slices. Slice zucchini and tomatoes. Chop onion and garlic.

In a large roasting pan, combine the bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, zucchini, garlic, thyme and 1/2 teaspoon of the black pepper.

If possible use fresh thyme and basil, but dried will do also.

Drizzle with the olive oil; toss to coat. Roast, tossing the vegetables once or twice, until the peppers are softened, about 40 minutes.

Cook the fusilli according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Add to the vegetables with the cooking liquid, basil, cheese and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper; toss to combine.

You can use any pasta instead of the Fusilli to vary this dish!

Serve and Enjoy!
