1 bunch(es), trimmed, cut into 5cm lengths

Instructions

  1. Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet instructions, or until just tender. Drain. Place in a large serving dish.
  2. Meanwhile, heat an oil-sprayed chargrill or barbecue over medium-high heat. Place asparagus, zucchini, capsicum and sweet potato in a large bowl and spray with oil. Toss to coat vegetables in oil. Chargrill vegetables, turning occasionally, for 8-10 minutes or until golden and tender.
