I made this last night and we all loved it. The cold leftovers that I'm eating right now taste like summer... Ahh, summer!
I want to remember this, so I'm writing it up to share.
You can use whichever veggies you like. Next time I find asparagus on sale, I'll be trying it in here. Some orange peppers would be tasty, too.
Mix it up. Put whatever you like in here. Enjoy!
Summer Veggie Pesto Pasta
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 large head broccoli, cut into bite-sized chunks
1 pkg snap peas, trimmed and cut into bite-sized chunks
375 g penne pasta
3 Tbsp sun-dried tomatoes, diced
2 Tbsp pesto
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions.
While pasta is cooking...
In a large pan, stir-fry onions in olive oil for two minutes on medium. Add broccoli and cook for another two minutes. Add snap peas and turn pan off.
Add pasta to veggies. Add tomatoes, pesto, and parmesan cheese. Stir together and serve.
Tastes great hot or cold!
