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).
