This is a staple in our household. When we don't have a lot of time to prepare dinner this meal is quick and easy! It includes everything you need in one dish!
1 lb whole wheat pasta
1/2 zucchini, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
1 bag fresh mixed precut carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp olive oil
Boil water and cook pasta according to package directions. In a second pan, steam zucchini, cauliflower, and broccoli until heated through but still slightly crisp. In a large frying pan, heat olive oil and saute garlic. Add red bell peppers and peas to garlic and cook for 3 minutes over medium heat. Drain pasta and vegetables. Add both to frying pan and toss. Sprinkle with cheese.
Note: I added chicken breast cut up into chunks into my dish to make it a complete meal with your protein and complex carb! I also added a little bit of all natural pasta sauce to give it some more flavor!
