Easy Veggie Pasta Dish

I have recently decided to get more healthy with our dinners, whether my kids and husband, like it or not.  My first attempt at incorporating more veggies into our dinners was a very easy Veggie Pasta Dish I made last night.

  • 1/2 Box of Barilla's Mini Pene Pasta
  • 1 Handful of Grape Tomatoes
  • 1/2 Asparagus Bunch
  • 1 Handful of Black Olives
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • 3-4 Cloves of Garlic
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Butter
  • Grated/Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  1. Cook pasta as directed, saving a couple of ladle fulls of pasta water.
  2. While pasta is cooking, coat a large skillet with olive oil and tab of butter and heat on medium to medium-high.
  3. Add crushed garlic cloves to skillet.
  4. Wash and cut tomatoes, asparagus and black olives.  Then add to skillet.
  5. Add herbs, spices and Balsamic vinegar to your liking.
  6. Once pasta is done at to skillet.  Add pasta water as needed.
  7. Before removing from skillet, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
