Vegetables & Pasta in Fresh Tomato Sauce

A lazy Sunday evening calls for some heartwarming food. I tried Vegetables and pasta in fresh tomatoes today ... It was quite refreshing and warm on this rainy day!


1) 1 large (or 2 medium) tomatoes - diced.
2) 1 carrot - sliced
3) 1/3 cup frozen green beans
4) 1/3 cup frozen peas
4) 1/3 cup frozen sweet corn
5) a pat of butter
6) 2 cups pasta (any kind)- boiled in salt water and drained. 
7) Seasonings (whatever you think you'd like!) - I only used garlic salt and pepper.
8) Shredded cheese (mozzarella) for garnishing


A definite hit with li'l Nik Coder!
In a deep skillet melt butter and add diced tomatoes. Saute for a couple of minutes and add the rest of the veggies and seasonings. Cover and simmer while the pasta is cooking. Once the pasta is drained, check veggies and sauce for to make sure they're done. I like to leave the veggies a little crispy. Mix in pasta. Cover and allow it to sit for a couple of minutes to let the juices seep into the pasta.  Garnish with cheese on individual plates. 

Nik ate his whole plate (well almost his whole plate!) and clementines for dessert. I love it when he eats well!!
