Ingredients:

1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 cups broccoli florets, chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/2 pound brussel sprouts, stems removed and sliced
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 pound whole wheat penne, cooked
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
8 ounces smoked gouda cheese, freshly grated
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs

freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese for topping

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place the chopped peppers, sweet potato, broccoli, onion, brussels, mushrooms and garlic cloves on a nonstick baking sheet. Drizzle the veggies with the olive oil and honey. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper, and then toss them. Roast the veggies for 25 – 30 minutes, tossing them once halfway through. Cook the penne while the veggies are roasting.

Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Add the penne and half of the veggies, and then spoon half of the diced tomatoes over top. Add half of the grated cheese, then layer again with the remaining penne, veggies, diced tomatoes and cheese. Finish the top off with a sprinkling of breadcrumbs. Bake the pasta for 25 to 30 minutes, until the cheese is golden and bubbly on top. Serve with extra cheese for grating on top.

I was so pleased with this recipe! I ate the leftovers for lunch for the next several days. The sweet potatoes were so delicious and even the brussels sprouts were tasty!
