2 medium Carrots (coarsely chopped)
2 medium Zucchini (chopped)
2 clove(s) Garlic
1 eggplant Eggplant (cubed)
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (chopped)
1 medium Yellow onion (cut into 8 wedges)
1/4 cup Vegetable stock/broth, low sodium
1 tsp, leaves Thyme, dried
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper
3 tbsp Canola oil (for cheese sauce)
1/3 cup Wheat flour, whole wheat (for cheese sauce)
3 cup Partly skimmed milk, 1% M.F. (warm, for cheese sauce)
2 tsp Dijon mustard (for cheese sauce)
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, reduced fat (18%) (for cheese sauce)
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated (for cheese sauce)
1/4 tsp Salt and pepper (for cheese sauce)
1 1/2 cup Pasta, macaroni, elbow, whole wheat, dry


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Toss together in a large bowl the carrots, zucchini, garlic, eggplant, red pepper, onion, vegetable broth, thyme, salt and pepper. Spread the mixture in a single layer on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil.

Roast for about 35 minutes or until golden brown and tender-crisp. Set aside.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Make the cheese sauce: Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the milk and continue whisking gently until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Add the mustard, cheddar and parmesan cheeses, salt and pepper and whisk until smooth. Remove from the heat.

Meanwhile, cook the macaroni in the boiling water until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain well and add to the cheese sauce. Add the roasted vegetables and stir to combine.
