Roasted Tomato and Brussel Sprouts + Pasta With Pesto

I have been growing my own basil for awhile now, and when it is flourishing, I love to make pesto.  There are many interesting dishes that you can create with pesto, but today, I  added roasted vegetables and pasta to make a delicious and unique flavor.  This roasted tomato and brussel sprouts pasta with pesto has a rich garlic flavor that adds that extra yum. Gluten free, dairy free and vegan–you can’t get healthier or more delicious than this.
