Grilled Pasta and Vegetables

There really isn’t a specific recipe, just fun basic steps that can be easily altered. This dish does not include any meat, and makes a perfect side-dish. After enjoying the pasta and veggies, hubby and I decided a spicy sausage would complement the recipe perfectly.

Hubby and I love to experiment with recipes on the grill. Here are few of our grilled dishes we have shared: Boozy Grilled Pineapple Cherry Upside-Down Cake, Grilled Mediterranean Nachos, Grilled Green Tomato with Quinoa, Blue Cheese, AND Some Bacon Love.

Ingredients

Cheese Tortellini (fresh pasta that needs to be quickly cooked)
Green, red, and yellow bell peppers (cut in 1 inch squares)
Medium sweet onion (Vidalia onion preferred) (cut in 1 inch squares)
One bunch of asparagus (cut in 1 inch pieces)
Sliced baby bella mushrooms
Fresh herbs chopped finely (I used thyme and rosemary)
One stick of salted butter (1/2 cup)

Instructions

This recipe used a propane grill, and was set to high heat.

In a vegetable grill pan, cook the pasta for about five minutes, turning frequently. The pasta will get some grill marks with the slotted vegetable pan.

Place a cast iron pan or Dutch oven directly on grill, melt butter, add chopped fresh herbs, then add grilled pasta and prepared vegetables.

Cook pasta and vegetables together for about 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender and with crunch.

This recipe will serve six if used as a side-dish, or four if a main dish.

Enjoy!

    I never would have thought of grilling pasta. I think your idea of serving it with some hot Italian sausage would be great.

  • This pasta looks fantastic, healthier as well with all the veggies 😀
    Yum!

    What a fun idea! Your grilled tortellini looks terrific…and this would be a perfect entree for me! SO many great veggies with the cheesy pasta must be irresistible!

  • Tutti Dolci

    What an awesome idea, love the sound of grilled pasta!

  • Well, this is deliciously creative! Cooking the pasta on the grill eliminates heating up the kitchen boiling water for the pasta. I love it!

    Yum Terra, I love how vibrant this dish looks and also how you grilled the pasta first, would have never thought of that. I’m going to have to try this out!
