With zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes and bell peppers, this roasted veggie chickpea pasta salad goes big on vegetables. It’s tossed in a garlic vinaigrette.


  • For pasta salad
  • 2 medium zucchini, diced
  • 1 medium yellow squash, diced
  • 2 red bell peppers, diced
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 115 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 garlic cloves, in their skins
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces chickpea pasta (rotini, gemelli or penne)
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1/4 cup shaved parmesan for serving
  • For dressing
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir the zucchini, yellow squash, peppers, tomatoes, chickpeas and garlic with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.
  3. Spread the vegetables, chickpeas and garlic on 2 sheet pans in a single layer. Arrange the tomatoes cut side up.
  4. Roast the vegetables until they are browned at the edges and the chickpeas are crispy, about 25-30 minutes. Rotate the pans in the oven halfway through roasting. Let the vegetables cool for 10 minutes.
  5. While the vegetables are roasting, simmer the pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water until al dente according to package instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water in a colander.
  6. For the vinaigrette, squeeze the roasted garlic cloves into a small bowl and mash and whisk them into the vinegar, 3 tablespoons olive oil, mustard, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.
  7. Combine the roasted veggies and chickpeas in a large bowl with the pasta, scallions, chives and Parmesan. Then stir in the vinaigrette.
