Is it a bowl of pasta or a bowl of vegetables? I would say it is about 50/50. By using a lot of mushrooms and broccoli in my pasta bowl, I created a satisfying dinner using less than 3 ounces of pasta.
While the salted water was coming to a boil, I sauteed the mushrooms, onions, and garlic in 2 teaspoons of olive oil. I seasoned the vegetables with salt, oregano, and red pepper flakes. While the pasta was cooking I added the stem pieces of broccoli and a little pasta water. When the pasta was almost al dente I added the florets. Then the drained pasta along with a half cup of the pasta water went into the sauce and cooked together for a couple of minutes. A little olive oil on top and dinner was ready.
