WHOLE WHEAT PASTA WITH VEGETABLES

WHOLE WHEAT PASTA WITH VEGETABLES

INGREDIENTS 

  • 1 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 cup tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped (scallions)
  • 8 ounces whole-wheat pasta
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese ( Parmesan cheese)

Steps to Make It

Cook your whole wheat pasta according to the package directions; drain well, and set aside.

While the pasta is cooking, sautee the chopped bell pepper and the onion, garlic, and tomatoes in one tablespoon olive oil until just soft, about 3 to 4 minutes. Be sure to use a large enough pan for this, since you’ll be adding in all of the pasta next. 

Add the cooked pasta and add the remaining extra tablespoon of olive oil. Stir for 2 minutes to disperse and mix until well combined and everything is heated through. 

Remove from heat and pour into a serving bowl if you’re using one, and sprinkle the cilantro, scallions, and cheese on top of the cooked pasta and veggies.

Servings: Makes six servings of whole wheat pasta.

ZUCCHINI NOODLES WITH AVACADO PESTO AND SHRIMP

ZUCCHINI NOODLES WITH AVACADO PESTO AND SHRIMP

INGREDIENTS 

  • 5-6 medium zucchini (2¼-2½ pounds total), trimmed
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 ripe avocado 
  • 1 cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup unsalted shelled pistachios
  • 2 tablespoons lemon 
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil plus 2 tablespoons, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound raw shrimp (21-25 count), peeled and deveined, tails left on if desired
  • 1-2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning ( or any seasoning as per taste )

DIRECTIONS

  1. Using a spiral vegetable slicer or a vegetable peeler, cut zucchini lengthwise into long, thin strands or strips. Stop when you reach the seeds in the middle (seeds make the noodles fall apart). Place the zucchini “noodles” in a colander and toss with ½ teaspoon salt. Let drain for 15 to 30 minutes, then gently squeeze to remove any excess water.
  2. Meanwhile, combine avocado, basil, pistachios, lemon juice, pepper, and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Add ¼ cup oil and process until smooth.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add shrimp and sprinkle with Old Bay; cook, stirring occasionally until the shrimp is almost cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
  4. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Add the drained zucchini noodles and gently toss until hot, about 3 minutes. Transfer to the bowl, add the pesto, and gently toss to combine.
