Home Recipes Lunch Recipe of the Week: Pasta Fresca Kelli Style!

Last night I was unprepared for dinner as I got caught up in a bunch of home improvement projects!  So, at 5:30 with complaints all around I began dinner…..

Hmmmmm, no meat thawed out and nothing much in the house other than fruits and veggies.

So, I sliced up a bunch of purple onion and caramelized them.  Then add a bit of garlic, a sprinkle of thyme and oregano.  When that was all tender I added broccoli, diced zucchini, and diced japanese egg plant.  I let that cook until tender and then tossed it with some GF spaghetti noodles, fresh chopped tomatoes and basil, a drizzle of red wine vinegar and some olive oil.  I topped it off with grated pecarino cheese and a few cranks black pepper!  Our side was corn on the cob…it was a hit! Everyone loved it and it was sooooo easy.  A great way to use up all those veggies in my fridge!  The result a new great summer recipe.  I hope you enjoy it!
