Presto Pasta

Josh and I both work so some nights we don’t feel like making anything fancy…ok, a lot of the nights we don’t. So thank goodness for cereal and pasta, two staples in our house. The other night we went with pasta.

Have any of you tried some of the flavored pastas out there? I boiled up some basil linguni and was pretty impressed. The basil flavor was nice, not too overpowering, and it tasted great with my fresh veggie sauce. I topped it off with fresh basil and parmesan. This was a great meal in minutes.

I also made a quick salad, the more veggies the better:) So if you are tired from work, school, kids, life, etc. make pasta for dinner. We are always pleased and full when we do:)

  1. This looks so good- both the salad and the pasta! I love when there are more vegis than carbs or meat! Yayyy! Thanks for your comment on Josh’s snack ๐Ÿ™‚ He is just starting to get into my blog and its so fun to “tag team” like you and your Josh do!

  2. Awesome. I love pasta so much but don’t cook it as I’d like. This looks beautiful with all the colorful veggies!

  3. That is a veggie bonanza!!!
    What a nice healthy and PRETTY looking meal!
    I could use of those healthy dinners lately. oink oink!

  4. Yum-E! I love things like this! Your pasta looks amazing! I share your love of veggies (now if only my hubby would!)

  5. Yum! I am with you — pasta makes the best weeknight meal! I will often throw a bunch of veggies, meat, cheese, etc with pasta — the hubs calls it "pasta & stuff" — the only problem is when I hit on a particularly yummy combo and can't quite remember what I did and duplicate it again! Oh well, you dinner looks gorgeous, as always!

  6. That pasta looks awesome and so does the salad. Is that artichokes in the salad? I could eat them all by themselves.

  7. Brilliant! I love pasta. Wheat pasta is my favorite. I need to stock up on recipes other than spegetti or meatballs…any tips?

  8. Even if not tired I would make this! Pasta is always a staple here too. I would love to try basil flavored one! I only had carrot and tomato I think. Great meal.

  9. I love pasta and salad…it’s what I am making for dinner tonight. The artichoke hears looks great on the salad.
