Meatless Monday: Sweet Pea Parmesan
*7oz uncooked dry spaghetti noodles
*1 C frozen sweet peas (can substitute w/any frozen veggie)
*1/4 C olive oil (or a few tbsp butter if you prefer)
*1/2 C grated parmesan
*pepper to taste
*garlic salt to taste (can substitute regular salt)
Simply cook the pasta as usual but a few minutes before it is done (when it's al dente) add in the frozen veggies and continue to boil.
Drain veggies and noodles and put pack in pot. Add oil/butter, cheese and spices and stir thouroughly. Serve with a salad.
I love how versatile this recipe is. You can substitute with any kind of pasta or white cheese you have on hand, and you can substitute so many other different veggies. If you have super-picky eaters like I do, you can even cook a few different veggies and serve them separately as toppings. On nights when you do serve meat, you can try it with cubed chicken breast or smoked sausage. This dish is so easy and inexpensive, and you can cook it in less than 30 minutes.
