agassifan cauliflower and whole wheat pasta

Submitted by: AGASSIFAN

Introduction

If you want to keep this vegetarian, use vegetable stock. Feel free to add a little red pepper flakes if you like things spicier, or if you don't like basil, use oregano or marjoram instead. If you like broccoli better than cauliflower, use it instead. Add some red, or green bell peppers if you want a little more color to you dish...any vegetables can be added to this recipe...just be sure to add them to your nutrition tracker...

Since this has more vegetables than pasta it is a VERY filling meal.
