Healthy Vegetable Pasta with Olive Oil

Prep Time 15 min Cook Time 20 min Total Time 35 min

Ingredients

1/2 lb Pasta of choice; I like Spaghetti, although I’ve used Penne and Linguine before too.

1/2 cup Look Out Here I Come garlic olive oil, divided

1/3 cup Onion, diced

3 cloves Garlic, diced

5 cups assorted vegetables. I used a combination of Broccoli, Asparagus, and Carrots here.

1/2 Bell Pepper, diced

1/4 tsp. Salt

3/4 tsp. dried Parsley

1/2 tsp. dried Oregano

3/4 tsp. Garlic Powder

1/4 cup Reserved Pasta Water

Instructions

Cook pasta according to package directions.

While pasta water is cooking, add 1/4 cup of Look Out Here I Come garlic olive oil to a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the diced onion and cook for a couple of minutes until translucent. Add the diced garlic and cook for an additional 30 second before adding the rest of the vegetables, except the bell pepper.

You want to cook the rest of the vegetables until they’re at your desired texture. I like my vegetables to still have some crunch to them so I cooked my broccoli, asparagus and carrots for an additional 10 minutes. Add in the seasonings from the salt to the garlic powder. Towards the end of the cooking, add in the bell peppers and saute for another minute.

Drain and rinse the cooked pasta, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta water. Add the cooked pasta along with the 1/4 cup reserved pasta water, and the additional 1/4 cup of olive oil to the vegetables. Stir to combine and cook for another minute allowing flavors to meld.
