  1. To prepare:
  2. Start boiling 1 gallon of water for pasta. Take sliced vegetables and toss in a mixing or serving bowl with olive oil and garlic. Transfer to a baking sheet and retain excess oil in the bowl. Roast the vegetables about 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven until soft and lightly colored. Replace vegetables in the bowl and toss in lemon juice and basil. Toss in Bella Via Penne, cooked 2 minutes and drained in a colander, while vegetables were roasting. Finish with salt and pepper to taste. Top with parmesan cheese right before serving. Is great as cold pasta salad was well.
