summer pasta

I love me a good pasta dish :) Especially one that's hearty and full of vegetables. Last night I whipped up a dinner I hadn't made in quite a while...it's easy, made with fresh ingredients, and incredibly satisfying. The nice thing is that it can be made with all sorts of vegetables (not just the ones I use), and it doesn't need to have chicken. When I think of summer, I think of fresh produce...and this meal has just that :)

slice zucchini & yellow summer squash...wash mushrooms (mine were pre-sliced:)

grill chicken...chop onions

i love whole grain pasta...pick a good spaghetti sauce

drizzle olive oil in pan...toss vegetables and saute, saute, saute

add sauce & chicken to vegetables...cook pasta while sauce simmers

If you're like us you'll enjoy it Lady and the Tramp style...one plate and two forks.
How romantic ;)

This dish has been Brooks-approved! :)

YUM!! I don't know why I haven't thought of throwing in fresh veggies with our pasta! I'll definitely be whipping this recipe up!
Now if only we could stop hoarding our food long enough to be romantic and maybe steal a kiss at the end of the noodle ;)

I love it! I just made spaghetti sauce today! I used a can crushed tomatoes, a can fire roasted tomatoes, and a can of tomatoe paste. I added ground chicken, bell peppers, onions, brown sugar, and honey! It's SO good! I'm going to post it tomorrow I think! But what a great idea to just add the veggies to the sauce!
