"This pasta bake has it all: Ribbons of ooey gooey mozzarella nestled between tender vegetables doused in a tangy tomato sauce that sticks to the pasta in all the right places. Since you can make this with any of your favorite seasonal vegetables and just about any pasta type—just be sure the pasta has enough ridges for the sauce to cling onto—it deserves a spot in your weeknight rotation of easy, no-fuss dinners."
