How to Make Bowties with Scallions


  1. Prepare the macaroni as directed while cooking the veggies.

    Heat a large frying pan with the olive oil; add the mushrooms to sauté and become a nice golden color. Remove the mushrooms and set aside.

    In the same frying pan heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and add the veggies. Cook the veggies down until slightly wilted then add the mushrooms back in and toss.

    Plate the macaroni; top with the sautéed veggies and stir in the dressing; toss and serve.
