Hey everybody! I'm back from vacation feel great and relaxed! We had an amazing time and I missed you all!
If you're looking for a very quick and easy weeknight meal, this is the one for you. Although I didn't include lean protein in this dish, I think it would be amazing with shrimp, scallops or grilled chicken. Any of these would certainly not add too much time at all and it would be a delicious accompaniment.
1/2 cup basil spinach pesto
8 oz whole grain angel hair pasta
2 cups chopped broccoli
2 cups chopped cauliflower
2 cups chopped zucchini
4T grated Parmesan
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2tsp extra virgin olive oil
In a large pot, boil water for pasta and follow cooking instructions.
In a large sauté pan, heat the oil and sauté the veggies until crisp tender.
|**See below for the reason the poor zucchini are separated from the rest of their friends...|
Drain the pasta and return to the pot.
Add the veggies and pesto and mix well to combine.
**OR...if you like to spoil your hubs like I do, pull out some pasta and add only the veggies HE likes onto his plate (sarcasm here...yes, of course I love my Hubs enough to do this simple little thing for him, but honestly, normally I make him pick out what he doesn't want to eat. #thisaintburgerking):
Plate each serving and sprinkle with 1T Parmesan each, and red pepper flakes to taste.
