Easy Pasta with Vegetables
This takes all of fifteen minutes.
One pound of pasta. I like to use a small rotelle, they are little spirals.
Salt for the cooking water
6 cloves sliced garlic
One sliced onion
1/3 cup olive oil
One package frozen mixed Italian vegetables. Defrost and discard the excess water.
One teaspoon powdered chicken soup
1/4 cup milk or cream
One package Jimmy Dean peppered white sauce mix
One cup boiling pasta water
2 tablespoon butter
Grated cheese for the topping.
Saute the onion and garlic in the oil
Add the defrosted vegetables and powdered soup
Saute till warm
Mix the white sauce mix and the boiling water till smooth. Set aside
Cook the pasta
Add the cream and butter to the pasta
Add the vegetables
Add the white sauce and mix well
Serve on a bed of fresh spinach
Add the grated cheese on the top.
If you have any leftover chicken or any other protein, add it to the pasta.
So easy. So good.
