I wanted to try something different from what I usually make with pasta which is with meatballs or chicken. So I decided to use the vegetables that I picked up from the Virginia Farmer’s Market the other day!
I chopped up everything to prepare it for cooking.
I used a little olive oil and sautéed the red onions until they browned. I then added all the vegetables to the pan and added my spices. I used garlic powder, Italian seasoning, a little salt, pepper, fresh basil, and fresh rosemary.
I mixed everything together and covered and let it cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Then I added marinara sauce to the pan, mixed it in, and put the temperature on low. I covered the on and let it cook for about 7-10minutes or until the veggies are soft.
Then I poured the veggie marinara sauce over tri-colored rotini pasta and garnished with fresh basil! I also enjoyed this meal with a nice and crispy piece garlic toast! Yum!
Even though it’s Fall season, the weather here in Virginia Beach has been warmer than expected! Because of that, I’ve been able to enjoy the beautiful warm and breezy weather by hanging out at the beach!
There is an area near the end of the boardwalk where they have a fishing spot. It was so many people out there so this must be fishing season lol. I was just sitting on the bench with hubby enjoying the warm weather and taking in the beautiful scenery around me!
