PESTO PENNE PASTA

So I wanted to make something that was quick and easy and in one pot. I first thought of making brown rice with stew pumpkin, pigeon peas, cabbage and sauteed spinach but I opted for something a little more gourmet instead; this Pesto Penne Pasta. Of course it's not a dish you would have everyday but in moderation it's totally fine. Plus no animals were harm making this deliciousness.

Even with my juice recipes, for the most part I aim for gourmet. I love anything that is gourmet. One day I will open my first Juice Wealthy shop with fresh gourmet vegan entrees and gourmet juices...did you realize how many times I used gourmet in just one paragraph? Yeah I know! This dish in particular though was very delicious, easy to make and perfect for the entire family and gatherings.

I started by cutting zucchini and pumpkin into cubes, roughly dicing the red onion before placing it in the oven.

After removing it from the oven and placed in a stove top grill pan, I added kernel corn and baby spinach to the mixture.

My family asked for seconds with this recipe... it's 100% vegan and not shy of bold flavours and taste suitable for any palate.
