Pasta with Sauteed Vegetables and Cherry Tomatoes


Pasta with sauteed vegetables and cherry tomatoes

250 g penne, fusilli or elbow noodles (or any other hard noodle you like)

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

1-2 red or yellow peppers sliced thinly into 2-3cm (1 inch) pieces

1 red or white onion quartered and thinly sliced

About 100 g (4 oz) ripe quartered cherry tomatoes (that’s about 12, but use more if you feel like it – the more tomatoes, the saucier the vegetables will become)

1 medium zucchini halved and sliced thinly (optional)

2 large cloves of garlic thinly sliced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

How to do it

1. Cook the pasta according to instructions

2. While the pasta is cooking, slice the vegetables

3. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add the onions, peppers and zucchini, and saute until they start softening and getting some color.

4. Add the garlic slices and saute for another minute (or until you start smelling the garlic)

5. Add the tomatoes and saute for another few minutes, until the tomatoes start softening and getting some color.

6. Add salt and pepper to taste

7. Serve over the pasta and add finely grated Parmesan cheese to taste

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe. I am having a little trouble feeding my son with something other than meat and this really sounds interesting. I do hope that he will love this, if not make this his favorite. If that happens, I will not tire of serving him this dish. Again, thank you for this post. Please keep on sharing.
