Angel Hair Pasta & Veggies

September 26, 2012 at 11:54 pm | Posted in Main Dish, Meat-less, Pasta | Leave a comment

This recipe is from Gooseberry Patch.  I took an original from them and added a few veggies.  The original title is 15-Minute Parmesan Pasta, it’s on page 86 of  “5 Ingredients or Less!”

This meal fed the three of us, with no leftovers.  You could easily double it, simply cook the entire box of pasta and add more veggies.  You can also change the veggies.  My teenager told me, “It needs meat!” but then he devoured two servings.

You will need:

cutting board and sharp knife
cheese grater
garlic press
strawberry huller for seeding tomatoes

That red pot is my official Pasta Boiling Pot.

See that spoon?  That’s my favorite spoon.  If I ever lose it or it breaks, I’ll cry.

Grate your own Parmesan.  Please don’t use that stuff in the green jar.
Good for strawberry hulling and taking seeds out of tomatoes!
See?  Tomato shells!  

Did you know that a strawberry huller is great for removing seeds from tomatoes, especially small ones?  Yep!  All you do is cut the top off of the tomato and scoop out the seeds and then you’re left with a small tomato shell.  Simply slice and they’re ready to go.


8 oz. Angel Hair Pasta
8 fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 sweet yellow pepper, julienne sliced
8 tomatoes, seeded and sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
2/3 cup olive oil
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese plus more for serving

Ready to get tossed into the pan with garlic and olive oil.

Prepare pasta in boiling water; cook for two minutes LESS than package directions.  Keep warm in serving bowl.

Heat oil in wok; add veggies and stir-fry for about three minutes on medium, until crisp tender.

Add warm pasta and stir together for another two minutes.

Pour into serving bowl.  Top with Parmesan cheese and toss lightly.

Serve immediately.

Stir-fry on medium heat

Add pasta and stir together for two more minutes

Cheese has been added; need to gently toss it now!
