Pasta Primavera

Here is a quick dish, that is yummy & requires only 5 ingredients.

Pasta Primavera

 1/2 box of thin Spaghetti
 1 bunch of Asparagus
 1 zucchini
  1 cup diced ham or prosciutto (or more or less according to your desires).
  Parmesan cheese.

 Boil your noodles until they reach your desired tenderness.

In a separate pan pour a little extra virgin olive oil & break up your asparagus. (If you snap asparagus, like you would a green bean, it will snap easily until you reach the woody part of the stem. Once it gets difficult to snap, throw that section away & your asparagus will always be delicious & you will never be stuck with the woody section again.).  Cut up your zucchini in small pieces & saute these vegetables until done.

Drain your pasta, & add to the pan on vegetables  Take 1-2 teaspoons of a Chicken Base or Bouillon & add just a 1/2 cup of water. Mix it up & then pour over your noodles & veggies. Mix up & let this cook into your noodles for a little extra flavor. Add ham & mix up. Once everything is hot & mixed. Put on plates & sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.

Its a light, delicious
 meal. That would yummy with hot garlic bread or even just a lone.

It is quick, easy & very kid friendly.

Bon Appetite!
