Pasta is Food For the Soul

I absolutely adore pasta. I eat it far too much and am constantly looking for ways to make it interesting. I make pasta at least once a week and have come to love it more since becoming a pescetarian. This is one of my favorite ways to make it – it’s easy, healthy, and most of all, delicious!

Garlic and Vegetable Pasta

Ingredients:
1/2 box of any kind of pasta, I like to use whole wheat or pasta made with vegetables
1 large ripe tomato
any kind of vegetable that you have lying in your fridge, I used about 6 mushrooms
3 or 4 cloves of garlic
olive oil
dried basil
Parmesan cheese
fresh basil leaves for adornment

 Directions: 
1. Cook pasta and prep the ingredients by chopping the garlic, tomatoes, and your choice of vegetables.

2. Place a generous amount of olive oil in a pan on medium heat and add chopped garlic along with a pinch of each: salt, pepper, and dried basil.

3. Add in vegetable of choice and cook for about 3 minutes or until the veggies are a little under-cooked. The add in tomatoes and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.

4.  Mix the sauce with the cooked pasta, sprinkle some Parmesan cheese and fresh basil on top, and enjoy!
