With the weather cooling down, it's time to roast all the veggies again! I love roasted vegetables but in the summer, there is no way that I'm turning on my oven and heating up my house. I love a good pasta dish and truth be told, I've barely ever made my own Alfredo sauce. I found an awesome jarred Alfredo sauce that tastes like homemade that is perfect in this Roasted Vegetable Fettuccine Alfredo dish!

When deciding what vegetables to roast for this pasta, I went to my local market and chose the vegetables that looked the best along with the ones that were on sale. When making a dish with a bunch of veggies, that is what I recommend. Go into your grocery store or farmer's market with an open mind and choose the items that are seasonal, look good or are on sale. For this particular recipe, I went with butternut squash, carrots, onions, Brussels sprouts and asparagus. Yum! I got many of the ingredients from Walmart at super affordable prices including the butternut squash, carrots, alfredo sauce and pasta.

My little trick for cooking butternut squash at the same time as the other veggies and not having it take too long is to steam it in the microwave a little bit before cutting it. That way, it doesn't have to cook in the oven from raw which can take a long time. I peeled this squash but typically, I do not peel butternut squash and just eat the skin. It is rich in vitamins and gets soft when you cook it.

I always choose whole-grain when possible and was excited to find whole-wheat fettuccine noodles so I stocked up on a bunch for fall and winter cooking! I love the fiber and protein boost that you get from whole-wheat noodles. I did not include meat in this recipe but think that shrimp or chicken would be awesome in it.
