We love roasted vegetables. And we love pasta. So then we thought, how about we combine the two and get a beautiful bowl of concentrated flavour! It needed a little something and that’s why we added a fragrant, crunchy topping of pangrattato to finish it off. Take it for a twirl!

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Thinly slice the red capsicum. Cut the zucchini into 0.5cm half-moons. Cut the red onion into 1cm wedges. TIP: Cut the veggies to the correct size so they cook in the allocated time. Place the red capsicum, zucchini and red onion on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until tender.


While the veggies are roasting, bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the spaghetti to the boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes, or until ‘al dente’. Reserve some pasta water (1/2 cup for 2 people / 1 cup for 4 people) then drain the pasta and return it to the pan. Drizzle with olive oil to prevent sticking and cover with a lid to keep warm.


While the spaghetti is cooking, zest the lemon to get 1/4 tsp for 2 people / 1/2 tsp for 4 people. Pick the parsley leaves and finely chop. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press).


In large frying pan, heat a good drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the panko breadcrumbs (see ingredients list) and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Add the lemon zest, parsley and 1/2 the garlic and cook for a further 1 minute or until fragrant. TIP: Add more or less lemon zest according to your taste. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Transfer to a medium bowl.


Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil and add the tomato paste, capers and remaining garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the diced tomatoes and some pasta water (1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people). Add the salt (see ingredients list) and a pinch of pepper. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Add the butter and sugar and cook for 1 minute or until melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the roast veggies and spaghetti. TIP: Add a dash of pasta water if the sauce looks dry.


Divide the Tuscan vegetable spaghetti between bowls. Top with the lemon parsley pangrattato and sprinkle with the shaved Parmesan cheese.
