Angel Hair Primavera
2 large carrots
1 large zucchini
1 large summer squash
1 can artichoke hearts
1 box angel hair pasta
5 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
2 cans diced tomatos, drained
3 Tbsp lemon juice
Parmesan Cheese to taste
Use a Pampered Chef Julienne Peeler to cut carrots, zucchini and squash into julienne strips. Drain and quarter artichoke hearts. Set aside.
Add 1 tsp salt and 2 Tbsp olive oil to a large pot of water and boil. Add Angel Hair Pasta and cook 4-6 minutes or until done. Drain, return to pot and toss with 2 Tbsp olive oil.
While the pasta is cooking, heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Saute garlic slices for 5 minutes. Add julienned vegetables and stir fry for 5-7 minutes. Add tomatoes and artichoke hearts and cook an additional 3 minutes, tossing to combine. Add lemon juice and 2 Tbsp olive oil. Remove from heat.
Serve by creating a bed of pasta on each plate and topping with a generous portion of vegetables and a sprinkling of cheese.
