The easiest, fastest, vegan oven-baked pasta with pesto and vegetables made in one pot.

This pasta dish does not want much while the fact that you only need one pot to prepare it means that you will not have much dishes to wash afterwards.

This pasta makes even healthier this dish.

Tips and Substitutions

Instead of eggplant and pepper you can use vegetables of your choice. Broccoli, asparagus, spinach also go amazingly well with pesto.

Είναι πολύ σημαντικό να ψιλοκόψετε τα λαχανικά σας για να ψηθούν τέλεια μαζί με το πενάκι.

If you are not vegan you can use parmesan in your recipe.

Η συνταγή γίνεται επίσης τέλεια με ψημένα λαχάνικα που σας έχουν μείνει από προηγούμενη μέρα.

  • 380 gr. penne

  • 2 tsp garlic

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
