Summer Veggie Pasta
So I know that I have created something similar to this before but I saw summer squash and zucchini on sale and saw asparagus next to it and just had this idea pop in my head:
I mean tell the truth- how good does that look?!?!?! SO good, I know.
So I totally made this up. I am a very experimental and “eye-ball it” chef, I realize that a lot of people really need a recipe to follow in order to feel comfortable so I will try my best.
1 Fresh Tomato (Chopped)
1 Small Onion(Cut into small strips)
1 clove of Garlic(Minced)
1/2 Zucchini (Halved and Sliced)
1/2 Summer Squash(Halved and Sliced)
8-10 Pieces of Asparagus(Cut into 1-2 inch pieces)
Pasta of your choice
1) Heat water in pot and cook your pasta once it starts to boil
2) Heat some olive oil in a sauté pan, add Garlic and cook until softened through. Add your Onion slices and cook until softened. Next add the Asparagus pieces. Cook for about 3-4 minutes and add the squash and zucchini. Lastly when everything is mostly cooked to your liking add the tomatoes(basically just to heat them through).
3) Serve over the pasta of your choice and Bon Appetite!
Seriously you guys, Jake was honestly in LOVE with this meal. Couldn’t stop saying how good it was. It makes me feel so good to cook food that he loves. I look forward to the moments of praise for my favorite thing I do; create culinary masterpieces..haha joke, simply cooking.
