Vegetable Linguine Toss

Submitted by: GENIETEST

Introduction

Great for large groups or when you want a fresh tasting dinner for one. You can exchange any of the vegetables so this is a good one to clean out your fridge or freezer!

Ingredients

    8 oz Nature's Promise Whole Wheat Linguine
    1.5 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1 large (or 2 med) Red Ripe Tomato
    .5 cup Zucchini, sliced
    2 Carrots
    .5 cup Onions, quartered
    2 cloves Garlic, minced
    2 ts Basil (dried)
    2 ts Oregano (dried)
    Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

In large pot cook Linguine to taste. When done, drain and put back in pot. I find that if you spray your pasta with Pam or add a touch of Olive Oil or butter to it then it will not stick together. Cover to keep warm.

While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a large skillet until hot. Add garlic, carrots and onions. Cook for about 5 minutes (until almost crisp tender), add Zucchini and Tomatoes. If the vegetables start to stick add a tablespoon or water to the skillet. Cook until crisp tender about 2 to 3 more minutes. Add Basil, Oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Add to the Linguine and toss! Serve while hot.

I have done many variations on this by changing the vegetables to the time of year. Some of the other vegetables I like to use are green beans, peas, asparagus, bell pepper, sugar snap peas, snow peas, corn (can be frozen) even broccoli and cauliflower (can be frozen as well), and my favorite, bean sprouts (this should be added in the last minute of cooking only). You can always add some cheese to the top too!
Enjoy!

  • My family liked this meal. I added asparagus, peppers, and peas (to appeal to everyones different tastes) & they lapped it up. My husband is finnikey and doesn't like linguine, so he ate all the veggies but left the pasta, so I'll be trying this receipe again but with a different type of pasta. - 1/1/09
