Ratatouille Pasta

This rich in flavor and packed with veggies pasta is a perfect plant-based weeknight dinner. It takes about 40-45 minutes to make but requires minimal effort and the flavor is just spectacular. It’s sweet thanks to the capsicums, fresh thanks to the tomatoes and has a beautifully soft texture. Yum! You have to try it for yourself!
