Pasta Primavera

I’ve done this for a party and it was a great success. This recipe gives a huge portion though, so needless to say if you’re only cooking for a small group, make a smaller potion. It makes a very good party dish though because you don’t need to it serve hot, lukewarm or cold will also do, and you can store it in the fridge overnight.

1/2 lb uncooked noodles
1 cup (frozen) peas
2 cups (frozen) broccoli
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 big onion
2 garlic cloves
9 cherry tomatoes
1 Zucchini
1 tbsp oregano
2 tbsp garlic oil
3 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

I took a lot of frozen vegetables here, but feel free to take fresh ones. If you don’t have garlic oil, just use ordinary olive oil.

Prepare pasta according to instructions.

In the meantime, place broccoli and peas into a pan along with 1 cup of water. Boil until they become soft. Depending on how big your broccoli is you may want to add the peas later.

In the meantime, chop garlic cloves, zucchini and onions. Cut cherry tomatoes in halves and slice peppers. When broccoli and peas are ready add garlic,oregano, onion and tomatoes along with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Let simmer for 4 -5 min and taste with slat and pepper. Lastly reduce heat and add pepper slices. Let simmer for another 1 – 2 min and then place vegetable into a large bowl or oven dish if you want to keep it warm in the oven.
Place pasta into a different bowl and pour garlic oil on top. Stir.

Spoon pasta into the same bowl as the vegetables, add the remaining olive oil and stir. Serve with parmesan if you like.
