Simple and delicious! This recipe is an example of something I would eat out at a restaurant. Most restaurants serve or have boxed pasta and veggies and olive oil. Just request this simple idea tossed with garlic and I’m in!
*It’s funny because when we go out to eat with friends or family, they often go straight to the salad section to see what ‘we’ can ‘eat’ – me, I often check to see that they have eggless pasta or rice and request that with some veggies, olive oil and garlic. I know they gotta have olive oil and garlic, right? Check this one out – I frequently make something similar to this at home with broccoli (we LOVE broccoli !!) and peas. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
Fettuccini Pasta, prepared according to package
Small Potatoes, quartered or sliced in half
Asparagus, stems removed
Frozen Chopped Spinach, steamed
Shiitake Mushrooms, sliced
Edamame, shelled/steamed
Fresh Parsley
Garlic, minced
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt/Pepper to taste
Chili Powder to taste
Red Pepper Flakes, pinch

Directions:
-In large pot fill with water – add potatoes and bring to boil. Once boiling add pasta and cook until al dente and potatoes are fork tender.
-Add about 2 Tbsp Olive Oil to pan and saute Asparagus for 5-7 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
-Back to same pan, add mushrooms and saute for about 5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
-Back to pan add remaining olive oil (that will be used to toss with pasta), pan will still be hot – here add minced garlic also and red pepper flakes.
-Toss together pasta, olive oil with garlic, edamame, asparagus, mushrooms and spinach along with salt/pepper to taste.

Notes: I did not include measurements in my initial ingredient listing as I made a large batch of this meal to have for leftovers for a few days. The ingredient list below are the measurements I used – again this is for a large group/party or perfect for leftovers. If making for smaller family or group, adjust quantities as needed.
