I don’t know who Suki is, but she knows how to make noodles. It took me a little while to cut up the veggies. I still don’t have the best knife skills. I wonder how long it takes to develop those. But after a bit of chopping and cooking the onions, all
I had to do was throw it in a pan and stir.
Due to a tip I received from one of my readers (thanks AZ93), I only cooked the garlic for about 30 seconds instead of waiting for it to get golden brown. The fresh veggies took longer than 2 minutes, but not by much.
I was worried that the pasta would be dry with no sauce. However, by the time everything was mixed together and heated through there was just enough liquid to coat the pasta without being watery. I forgot to take a picture, but this was a pretty dish.
All the colors went together beautifully.
We sat down to this meal with great anticipation. It wasn’t exactly cheap. Any reservations we had were quickly squashed with our first bites. I told my oldest that he was allowed to pick out the tomatoes and mushrooms, but that he had to eat the rest.
His look of concern quickly went away, and he even went back for seconds. As a matter of fact, everyone went back for seconds including my 16 month old. I even caught my husband sneaking bites before we put away the tiniest bowl of leftovers. Not bad for
a full pound of noodles, tons of veggies, and an entire block of feta cheese.
