It's so easy to cook roasted vegetables. This recipe takes this method to the next level by adding delicious pesto to the mix. Pesto gives a wonderfully rich texture to this quick veggie side dish - and adds an Italian flavour to Sunday lunch. This simple recipe serves 4 people and will take only 30 mins to cook in the oven. Toss freshly prepared courgette, pepper, leek and aubergine in delicious basil and enjoy with chicken, fish or a nice cut of steak.

  • 1 red and 1 yellow pepper, thickly sliced
  • 1 leek, thickly sliced
  • 1 aubergine, chopped
  • 4tbsp basil or rocket pesto
  • 2tbsp olive oil

You can use any combination of vegetables for this dish: fennel, red onion and mushrooms all taste great, too.


  1. Toss the courgettes, pepper, leek and aubergine in the pesto with the olive oil and season well.
  2. Roast in a preheated oven at 200C (400F, gas mark 6) for 20-30 mins.
