What’s for Dinner: Pasta and Veggies

Posted on

Hubby had a craving for veggies this week so I decided to do a stir-fry with a twist.  It turned out pretty yummy.

I’m just going to give the recipe for the veggies.  Prepare your favorite pasta to accompany them.  I used spaghetti because its what I had available. 

For this recipe I took ideas from a variety of other recipes and made up my own.  Hope you enjoy.

Step 1: Prepare your favorite veggies.  I used

  • Broccoli
  • Zucchini
  • Carrots
  • Mushrooms
  • Green Onion
  • Dhania (Coriander)

Pasta and Veggies (683x1024)

I think next time I would like to add

  • Cauliflower
  • Red Peppers
  • Corn

Basically slice everything.  For the carrots and zucchini cut into thin strips.

Step 2: Heat oil in frying pan until hot.  Add veggies one by one.  I started with carrots, then the zucchini, followed by broccoli, then mushrooms and finished with the green onions and dhania.  After each addition stir well and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Step 3: Add about 1/2 a cup of chicken broth, stir and cover.  Let simmer until veggies are soft. (Because I was making this to Benji to eat and because hubby doesn’t like crunchy veggies I let the veggies cook until they were quite soft).

Step 4: Add 1-2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce, Salt, Pepper and any other desired seasonings to taste.

  1. Looks yummy! I’m still working on trying to get those chips made! I had the potatoes and carrots pealed for making thme and also the sauteed slaw to go with the fish and chips when Dad called to say we needed to go to Clayton to get gas and we would just eat down there – We got Jed a personal pan pizza and we went to get salad at the salad bar at Ingles – actually i had veggie soup and Dad had salad. SO hopefully tonight we will get to have the fish, chips and slaw. 😀 You are sure doing a great job on this cooking class! Did you let all the girls know about it who wanted to sign up for your class? Can’t wait to see what’s cooking tomorrow! Hugs!
