Spelt Pasta with Veggies-- kids will love!
I am in love. Wih spelt pasta-- seriously a thousand times better than wheat pasta which I have always personally found a little too nutty for my taste. It is also lower in carbs which makes me very happy too! I made this last night and it was so delicious-- even the hubby ate it and he believes he is allergic to vegetables. The kids devoured it. And I was in pasta heaven. So, I had to share the resipe-- so simple, so easy, and very, very healthy! 1 box of spelt pasta 1 zucchini 2 small heads of broccoli or 1 large head choppes a handful of baby carrots or 2 carrots chopped half a pint of cherry tomatoes or one large tomatoe diced 4 tbs of olive oil 2 tbs of butter 2 cloves of garlic pinch of fresh chopped parsley for top freshly grated parmesean cheese In a large pot bring water to boil. While the water is boiling, add your carots and broccoli into the pasta water (chop them first). This saves pots, flavors your water, and makes things so much easier. In a saute pan, melt butter and add in olive oil. Add garlic for a few minutes. Toss in chopped zucchini. When pasta water is boiling, scoop out broccoli and carrots and add them in to the saute pan. Season with pepper generously-- peppered veggeies are amazing. Boil pasta.
