Seasonal Vegetable Pasta Primavera

(Makes 4 servings)

  • 8 ounces pasta, cooked and drained but not rinsed
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut in strips
  • 1 medium onion, cut in slivers
  • 6 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1 bunch asparagus, cut in 2-inch slices
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
  • Grated Parmesan, for sprinkling

Preparation:
Heat olive oil in large saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook garlic, pepper strips, and onion for 3-4 minutes. Add tomatoes, asparagus, broccoli, and salt. Bring to boil, then reduce to medium and cook until asparagus and broccoli are tender-crisp, about 10 minutes. Stir in basil and parsley. Toss and serve immediately over cooked pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan if desired.

Note: Substitute vegetables with your favorites, and for added protein, toss in grilled chicken or tofu.
