Recipe : Garden Fresh Meal

Share via email

Just call me Farmer Dizee.  Why?  Because I grew my dinner! (Ok, most of it!)

 

Ingredients

(You can use more or less depending on your preference.  My meal made two portions):

1 tbs Olive Oil

1 tsp Minced Garlic

1 Zucchini cut into chunks

Cupof Cherry Tomatoes, quartered & seeds removed

7 Leaves of Basil cut up/shredded

Pasta (I used whole wheat)

Directions:

Cut up all the veggies.  

Put a pot on the stove, add water (I also add salt ), turn on the heat to medium/high

Grab a nice size pan, place it over medium heat and start heating the Olive Oil.  

When the oil is hot, add the garlic for a minute or two.

Stir in Zucchini, let them cook up for a few minutes

Add the Tomatoes, stir and let them cook for a few more minutes.

By now, the water should be boiling, add the pasta and cook per the package (I like Al-Dente or as my husband calls it  ” barely cooked”)

Allow everything to keep cooking, continue to stir.  Stirring is important.  Add the Basil toward the end.

Drain the pasta and add the veggie mixture.

Put it on a plate and eat.  I added some cheese… yum!
