This is a quick winner at my house even for my husband who doesn't like veggies! It is a great not too heavy pasta dish that pleases every time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil pasta in salted water.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, make long carrot strips using a veggie peeler and shred the zucchini with a cheese grater.
  3. Drain the pasta.
  4. Using the pasta pot, heat the olive oil, then add red pepper flakes, garlic, veggies, salt and pepper.
  5. Add pasta and toss, if you need more oil, add it now.
  6. Toss with a whole bunch of parmesan cheese (the more the better!).
  7. You can add chicken, prosciutto, shrimp, mushrooms, broccoli, peas, the list goes on and on and on.

This was good! I used shredded zucchini, carrot, and squash. I added some crispy bacon, which gave it a nice smoky essence.

Tasty pasta! I love adding fresh veggies to my pastas, so this was just right for me. I added a little romano cheese with the parmesan. Made for My 3 Chefs Nov 2008. Thanks!
