How To Make

  • 1
    Cook the pasta according to package instructions.
  • 2
    While pasta is cooking,chop onion and garlic. Let them sit for 5 minutes before cooking. (It is suppose to bring out "healthier properties." IDK what that means, but the original recipe says that.)
  • 3
    Chop rest of vegies.
  • 4
    Heat 1 Tbsp. of vegetable broth in a skillet. Over medium heat, saute onion in the broth, stirring frequently for 3 minutes. Add the vegies in the order given above, waiting about 1 minute between each new ingedient.
  • 5
    Add tomatoes and broth and simmer for another couple minutes, until vegetables are barely tender, about 10 minutes. If needed, you can add a touch more liquid to keep moist. Add minced herbs. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 6
    Drain the pasta when it is done. Toss pasta with vegetable mixture and top with goat cheese if desired.
  • 7
    Note exactly sure what the extra vegie broth is for, unless it is the extra liquid in step 5.
  • 8
    For myself, I would eat this as it. If serving to family or friends, I would maybe toss some chicken pieces into the pasta water and boil with the pasta, or something...
