photo by Chef Joey Z.
- Ready In:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 large onion (chopped)
- 2 celery ribs (chopped)
- 1⁄2 cup bell pepper (sliced in sticks..I used green, yellow and red)
- 2 garlic cloves (pressed)
- 5 mushrooms (I used medium buttons)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon basil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon thyme
- 4 ounces cooked pasta
- 1⁄2 cup sangria (optional)
- Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet.
- Add the onion and celery and saute for a few minutes, at least until the onions start to get a bit transparent.
- Add the garlic, saute for a minute or two, then add the peppers and saute with the mushrooms for another minute or two.
- Add the herbs and sangria and reduce the sangria to about 1/2. This should take only a few minutes.
- Turn off the heat and set aside.
- Cook your pasta. Dreamfields spaghetti takes 8 minutes.
- When done top the pasta with the cooked veggies and a little romano cheese.
- Have it with a small glass of sangria or red wine.
- Bon Appetit!

<img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> I was born in northern Ontario in Canada. I am of Irish /Spanish/French Canadian descent. In 2002, myself, my hubby Stu, and our dog Ginger moved to the high desert of New Mexico. I am a Domestic Engineer and a Professional Artist. I enjoy oldies, classical and jazz music. My hubby is a Professional Jazz and Classical Musician. He plays with the Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra which is wonderful because I get to see all his concerts and they are free! We are trying our best to live a Green and Sustainable lifestyle which is no easy feat in a desert. I love any cookbook that promotes good health and tasty meals. I enjoy pasta dishes and sweet vegan deserts. I have found that I am very successful in converting conventional recipes to vegan. This has allowed me to enjoy all types of foods that I other wise could not. Some day we would like to relocate to upstate New York and be closer to my family in Canada and my husbands in New York. My DH retires in 9 years, so nothing will stop us from heading home then :-)
