Another title for this recipe could easily be: “A quick and easy pasta dinner of whatever veggies are left in your kitchen or ready in your garden.” We love this recipe (ok, more like “guidelines”) because it’s a healthy harmony of simple, inexpensive staple ingredients that is easy to make (we promise) and a great lunch leftover to bring to work.
Follow my ingredients for a delicious assortment of seasonal, healthy vegetables, or simply sauté whichever vegetables may be leftover from last week’s Farmer’s Market, or ready to pick in your garden. As for protein, vegetarians may substitute protein-rich garbanzo beans for chicken (add to vegetable sauté), or pescatarians could opt for shrimp. The options are endless; you can’t go wrong with fresh veggies over wholesome pasta!
