Sauteed Garden Vegetables with Pasta by @UpsideDownPear

I’ve been making this dish fairly often recently, and I love it every time. You can switch up the veggies for your favorites, but I think the combination of onions, red bell pepper, and asparagus is perfect. You get the deliciousness of sautéed onions, the sweetness of the bell pepper, and the crunch of the asparagus. It all comes together to make this flavorful and filling dinner!

A few weeks ago, I bought a huge jar of minced garlic since I figured it would save time and energy of cutting up fresh garlic. I both love and hate it though and once it’s finished I’ll probably go back to buying the fresh stuff. I love it because it is waaaaay quicker than peeling and mincing cloves. But, the flavor just isn’t there and I end up using more garlic than I used to in order to get that same punch. That’s part of the reason I used two tablespoons of minced garlic in this dish. So if you want to use less garlic, please do so.

Fresh herbs are simply amazing and the easiest way to add some pizazz to any dish. I still have some fresh dill in my fridge, and I’ve been using it in everything. If you have any basil, I highly recommend adding it as well. My go to spices for this is the dill, garlic, salt, and pepper. That’s all you need to make this! One of these days I might start an herb garden. I always think about starting one, but I’m really bad a taking care of plants…which is why I haven’t tried to grow one yet.

Every time I eat this, I just feel good. Not only is it a great way to get in my daily dose of veggies, but I don’t feel like I’m missing meat. I know this dish will definitely be a staple during my yoga teacher training…and become one in my routine afterwards. You should definitely make this and keep it up your sleeve for those days when you’re tight on time.
