Vegetable Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 15 min.
I'm wondering if I did something wrong because while this was good, it wasn't WOW good. I found that there were way too many veggies and not enough pasta (the recipe pic was more of what I was expecting). Maybe what I consider "large" bell peppers are actually extra large?? I don't know. I think if there were less veggies I would have liked this more, since I could probably taste the sauce a bit more. I'd make this again but with some tweaks to get the right ratio.
This is by far the best diet recipe I have made from Taste of Home. I did tweak it by adding grilled chicken and artichoke hearts. Next time I will make the change of adding less peas. They were a little overwhelming. While my 17 mos old loved all the peas, I think next time I will only put 1 cup in instead of the whole 10 oz.
I just made this for the first time tonight. It was delicious! I did make a few changes. I only used 1 red pepper, the fresh mushrooms, and onion. I diced the pepper instead of julienned due to a picky 16 year old. I didn't have peas in the house, but I had left over grilled chicken breast. I hand shredded it and added it when I put in the pasta. The secret to me is letting the sun-dried tomato sauce slightly reduce with the sauteed veggies before you add the pasta. Wonderful and easy!
Just what I've been looking for. This looks delicious!
