  • 8 oz. rotini pasta (whole wheat, or chickpea pasta for something new!)
  • 1 ear fresh sweet corn
  • 1 large red pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • freshly cracked black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. While oven is preheating, cook pasta according to package instructions. Once it's done, rinse under cool water and place in a large bowl.
