Pasta and Veggies Galore!

Standard

When I cook- pasta is normally the last starch I consider using. I love rice and quinoa, and often do not even use a starch. I used a bunch of random vegetables that I had in my fridge for this- the measurements are approximate so feel free to change it accordingly!

Directions

  1. Start cooking the pasta of your choice – following the instructions on the package.
  2. Peel/chop the carrots, and cut up the mushrooms, snap peas, garlic and onion.
  3. Put them in a pan with olive oil on medium heat- season accordingly. (I use adobo, salt, pepper, chili pepper, and cajun seasoning)
  4. Once they are cooked to your liking add the spinach and tomato.
  5. Combine the pasta and vegetables- then add an egg (that was whisked in a bowl previously). Cook on low heat until the egg is fully cooked.
