Grilled Pasta And Vegetables

Grilled Pasta? Since you can grill just about anything- why not pasta? This recipe uses fresh pasta that only takes about five minutes when boiled in water. It’s easy to make, uses your propane grill, and is extremely versatile to your palate. Take a trip to your local farmer’s market and grab your favorite vegetables- then bring it all together to enjoy some delicious Grilled Pasta and Vegetables!

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)

Directions:

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!
