Clean and easy pasta dish.

Clean and easy pasta dish.

Who doesn’t love a tasty and simple recipe. As the days start warming up I tend to want meals that don’t require me to stand in front of a hot stove for very long. One of my all-time favorite foods is pasta, it’s super easy to play with and create tasty dishes with very little work. This dish is one of my family’s favorites, it was created out of hunger and the lack of desire to got to the store. While rummaging through the kitchen to figure out what ingredients I could put together that would make anything remotely tasty we stumbled on a dish we would continue making for years to come.

Whenever I make pasta my first instinct is grab veggies. At the time all I had was a yellow and orange bell pepper, a handful of fresh mushrooms, a tub of cherry tomatoes, and a small onion. Bell peppers are a great healthy veggie that kids love for their sweet flavor and bright colors. I boiled some penne, sliced my peppers julienne style, thickly sliced the mushrooms and cut the tomatoes in half. Personally, I don’t like heavy sauce with fresh veggies, so I just sautéed the veggies in an excellent quality olive oil with salt and pepper, only for a few minutes so they were still crispy. The mushrooms cooked separate, so I could sauté them in butter which is my all-time favorite way to cook mushrooms. Once the pasta was al dente I put them in the pan with all the veggies and tossed in more olive oil to coat the pasta and salt & pepper to taste. Sprinkle some Parmesan on top and you have a super fresh and tasty pasta dish the whole family will love!
