Spaghetti Alle Verdure

21 Feb

Having a pasta dish for dinner is always a pleasure for me. Without following a recipe, mixing new ingredients is a nice culinary adventure for me. The other night, I told my husband, I’m thinking of throwing all these vegetables in one pan, served with some whole-wheat spaghetti… Carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms, black olives; I happen to have them in the fridge…

The result was so good, I loved our new spaghetti alle verdure, rich in flavours. What we did is that we heated -2 tbsp olive oil in a pan, added -1 chopped onion, stiring for a couple of minutes, then we added -2 thinly sliced carrots, leave it to cook for few minutes, to soften, then add a -handful of cauliflower buds, stiring all together for few minutes. Then pull aside the content to the back of the pan, add a drizzle of olive oil and add about -200 g sliced mushrooms, let them cook a little to browned then stir altogether with the other ingredients. -Season with salt and pepper. Pour over a -can of 400g plum tomatoes. Let simmer for a 10 minutes, sprinkle some -dried basil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add about -50g halved black olives. In the meantime, cook the whole-wheat spaghetti to al dente. Serve the spaghetti with the sauce. And enjoy.
