- 2 medium yellow squash, cubed
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1–1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

- 8 ounces penne pasta
- 2 generous handfuls of arugula
- 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
- 2 tablespoons minced chives
- 1 ounce grated Parmesan
- 2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper.
- Arrange the cherry tomatoes, cut side up, with the green beans on one sheet pan. On the other sheet pan, spread the zucchini and squash in a single layer. Toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Roast for 20-25 minutes until the tomatoes are slightly wrinkled, and the green beans, zucchini & squash are lightly browned at the edges.

- Combine the tomatoes, zucchini, squash, pasta, green beans, arugula, red onions, chives and Parmesan in a large bowl. Toss in the white balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with the remaining salt and pepper.
Can regular balsamic vinegar be subbed for the white?
Yes, you can use regular balsamic. It will make the final dish a little darker than if you used white balsamic, but it will still be delicious!
