My good fiend told me (and made it for me first) about this very yummy, customizable-perfect-for-winter pasta. I just made it again this week and had to share!
What you need:
It's customizable because you can use whatever veggies, cheese and meat you want! But here's how I made mine.
Start with your choice of noodles. I boiled whole wheat rotini pasta. Drained 90% of the water once finished, but kept a bit (to help create a sauce later).
Pick your veggies. I chopped up carrots, used a can of beats, and sliced up zucchini. I cooked them in a pan with about 1-2 tbls of olive oil. Then throw them in the pasta pot.
Add sweet potatoes (or meat, or regular potatoes) - cut into chunks, boiled in separate pot and then added to pasta/veggie pot.
I even added a can of butter beans to this mixture for some protein.
Turn stove to low, to warm everything up. Stir and mix. Once it's warm - add your choice of cheese. I use goat cheese. This melts and with the pasta water, helps add moisture.
A great meal of whole wheat, veggies and protein. I make a lot so I can have for left overs for days to come!
