Grilled Pasta and Vegetables - Pure Grilling Love!

We shared this recipe a few years back and it has been loved ever since. What’s funny about that, it was just one of those wacky ideas we had and it actually worked. Last week while making wood-smoked ribs (yes and oh my), we thought about wood-smoking pasta and veggies. Great idea, right? It would probably be as easy as using the propane grill, but the flavors would be out of this world.

Okay, recipe! First, here are some recipes in the vault that would compliment this delicious entree- Sparkling Blackberry Cocktail, Bourbon Lemonade Cocktail, Tomato Basil Quick Bread, No-Bake Booze Berry Cheesecake. (Note: the Bourbon Lemonade would be a perfect compliment for the flavors used in this dish.)

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)


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.
