Vegan pasta with vegetables. 11/18/20

Whole grain penne with corn, tomatoes, and zucchini

Looking for a way to make your dinners more plant-based? Pasta is an excellent start. John and I frequently have pasta plus. Plus? Plus broccolini, plus asparagus, plus almost anything from the plant kingdom! Tonight’s dinner was whole grain penne with a sauté of onions, garlic, corn, tomatoes, and zucchini. In the summer I might have done this with fresh tomatoes and corn but frozen corn and canned petite diced tomatoes worked almost as well. I also added some red chile flakes for a bit of zing, basil, and a squeeze of lemon for some acidity.

The term “meatless Mondays” makes it sound like you are missing something. Why not try to incorporate “plentiful plants” more than once a week!
