Dominick and I have been planning to make a colorful pasta to celebrate spring, and here it is! We had a basic idea of how we wanted to make this, but we made up a lot as we went.
You will need:
About 1lb of pasta (We chose bowtie!)
1 Red Pepper
1 Yellow Pepper
Minced Garlic (Dom says you can also use garlic powder)
(Not pictured: minced garlic, olive oil, and salt)
Dom chopped what we thought would be way too much veggies and it ended up being a little less than what we would have liked. I think 2 peppers, 1 zucchini, and 2 handfuls of broccoli would be perfect.
Boil water for pasta and add about 1/4 cup of salt.
Add your pasta of choice to the boiling water and cook for 6-7 minutes (for al dente).
While you wait for your pasta to cook, steam your veggies! You can also pan fry them in olive oil.
Strain your pasta!
Add some olive oil and a spoonful of garlic to a pan and stir it around as it cooks for a minute or two.
Add your veggies and pasta to the pan and stir it around as it cooks for about five minutes.
Add Parmesan cheese if you wish, it's delicious!
