Ingredients

    Heartland Whole Wheat Penne Pasta = svg is based on dry p..., 5.25 cup/13.25 oz. box prepared & drained
    Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped (I prefer to use sweet onions
    Red Ripe Tomatoes, 1 cup cherry/grape tomatoes, sliced in half
    Sliced Portabella Mushrooms, 230 grams/1.5 cups
    Peppers, sweet, red, fresh, 1 cup, chopped
    Zucchini, 1.5 cup, sliced & cut in half
    Summer squash, 1.5 cup sliced & cut in half
    Broccoli florets, 1.5 cup cut into bite-size pieces
    Garlic, .13 cup/3 TBSP minced/chopped
    Large Shrimp, cooked, 14 oz bag (remove shell & devein)
    Best Choice Sliced Pitted Ripe Olives, 14 tbsp/3.8 oz. can
    Parmesan Cheese, grated, .25 cup
    *EVOO, 2 tbsp

Directions

Prepare Whole Wheat Pasta according to package directions at the time of starting the sauting of the vegetables. Pre-slice all of the vegetables in advance before beginning to saute them in 1 TBSP of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and 1 TBSP of chopped/minced Garlic. Saute the firmer vegetables on medium heat (Broccoli, Peppers, Onions, & Squashes) initially and half-way through their cooking process, add the quicker cooking vegetables (Tomatoes & Mushrooms). Continue sauting them together until desired tenderness. Add enough Italian Seasoning Blend to taste (I use at least 1 TBSP, if not more). Half way through cooking the vegetables, pre-heat a non-stick skillet on medium-high heat, adding the remaining 1 TBSP of EVOO and chopped garlic. Stir. Once the pan is heated, add the shrimp into the skillet laying them out in a single layer to ensure thorough heating. Stir after a few minutes of heating until heated through. In a large serving platter/bowl, combine the cooked pasta, vegetable mix, and shrimp together. Add the sliced ripe Olives and the Parmesan Cheese. Blend well. Salt & Pepper to taste (I prefer to use Garlic Salt instead to add more flavor to the dish). Serves 8 - 1.5 cup svg size.

  • This is so tasty! I modified it just a little bit based on my cupboards: chicken instead of shrimp, spiced the chicken with pepper and lemon (I had to use up a lemon :), and spiced the veggies with pepper, salt and rosemary. AWESOME combination. DELICIOUS, and highly recommended!!! :) - 9/28/09
