In honor of my beautiful friend and bride-to-be (this weekend!), here is her recipe for a pesto pasta that'll rock your world and next dinner party. She roasted peppers, onions, eggplant and pine nuts beforehand and added them to the fun-shaped pasta right before serving. I cannot wait to make this again soon!
