Pasta Primavera

This makes a great main dish or side dish. Add chicken or shrimp for some extra protein. I probably make this at least 3 times a month.

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

5 Min

Ingredients

8 oz
pasta of choice
4
zucchini
3 c
broccoli florets
2
tomato
5 clove
garlic
1/2 c
white wine
4 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
2 pinch
red chili flakes
salt and pepper
1/2 c
parmesan cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Boil water for pasta. While it's heating up, chop up the zucchini and broccoli into bite size pieces.
2
Thinly slice the garlic, and add to a pan with the olive oil and chili flakes. Add some salt and pepper and set this pan aside. Chop the tomatoes and set aside.
3
Cook the pasta according to package directions. Once there are 3 minutes of cooking time left, add the zucchini and broccoli to the pasta water and let them cook with the pasta.
4
On medium heat, cook the garlic and red chili flake mixture until the garlic starts turning golden. At that point, add the chopped tomatoes and cook for about 2 minutes until they are soft. Add white wine and let reduce for about 5 minutes.
5
Drain the pasta and veggies, but reserve about 1/2 cup of the pasta water to add to the garlic tomato sauce. Add the garlic/tomato sauce to the pasta and toss. Add salt and pepper and parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
