An array of thyme-roasted vegetables and sliced cacciatore tossed with pasta and dressing makes a quick and yummy mid-week treat!

No pork option - replacement is beef chipolatas.



Gluten friendly option - pasta is replaced with GF pasta.
1. Set oven to 220°C and bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Cut capsicum and eggplant into bite-sized pieces, slice courgettes and red onion. Thinly slice chorizo.

2. Toss prepared vegetables and chorizo with cherry tomatoes (whole), 10 thyme sprigs, 1 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper on a lined oven tray. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

3. Add pasta to the boiling water and cook according to packet instructions. Drain and rinse.

4. Combine 2 tbsp olive oil, lemon juice, 1 tbsp chopped thyme, 2 tsp honey and 1 crushed garlic clove.

5. Once vegetables are ready, toss with cooked pasta and dressing then adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed. Divide between plates to serve.

Notes:
If short on time, you can cook prepared vegetables and chorizo in a frypan instead, just prior to tossing with pasta.
