Whole Grain Vegetable Pasta

I love making vegetable pasta during the week because it’s simple, fairly quick and I can make lots of different variations depending on what veggies I have in the fridge and how I flavor it. I often use different types of vinegar and oil to cook the veggies with dried herbs and garlic but this week I noticed I had some leftover white wine from the weekend..so of course I had to try that out! It turned out really tasty so I thought I would share :)

 

Whole Grain Vegetable Pasta

Ingredients:

2 Cups Dry Whole Grain Pasta (I used Rotini)

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

2 Garlic Cloves Chopped

1/4 Cup Chopped Purple Onion

1/4 Teaspoon of each: Black Pepper, Salt, Basil, Parsley, Oregano

1/2 Cup Chopped Red Bell Pepper

1/2 Cup Chopped Green Bell Pepper

1/2 Cup White Wine

4 oz Baby Portabella Mushrooms, sliced

 

Directions

Cook pasta according to package directions. Sauté garlic cloves and onion in olive oil over medium low heat in a medium saucepan. Add black pepper, salt, basil, parsley and oregano and continue cooking until onions appear translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Turn heat up to medium and add chopped red and green peppers and white wine. Stir and cook a few more minutes until peppers are almost cooked to desired doneness. Add sliced mushrooms and continue to stir and cook until mushrooms are warm and cooked through. Divide pasta into 4 servings and top with vegetable mixture. Top with reduced fat shredded cheese if desired.
