I needed to whip up a quick dinner the other night, but wanted something simple and fairly healthy. I pulled ingredients from my fridge and pantry and made a primavera-esque dish that was actually really good!

I gathered as many veggies as I could find- broccoli, carrots, onions, and mushrooms.

I sliced my onion and immediately put it into the frying pan with some olive oil to caramelize. After the onion slices started loosing their shape I added the rest of the veggies, a tad more olive oil and some salt and pepper to season.

Cook until all veggies are soft

While the vegetables were on the stove, I cooked and drain some wheat spaghetti in a separate pot…

Wheat pasta takes just a bit longer to cook.

Once the veggies were done, I mixed them into the pasta and added a bit more olive oil to substitute as a sauce.

Sprinkle with grated parmesan, salt and pepper to taste

That’s it!

The dish was actually pretty filling and I had plenty of leftovers to bring for lunch the next day.

I love to cook, but not so much on weeknights. I’m always looking for simple and healthy dinner recipes- please feel free share your favorites below!

  1. Bella you should try stir-fry!! Its so easy to make and I LOVE bringing left overs to school the next day! You can find stir fry sauces at stop and shop, there are a lot of different flavors to try, and you can add a little or a lot so they are still healthy! And you can find Stir fry veggies in the frozen foods section if you don’t want to spend all that time cutting up your veggies, you can also add chicken or beef!! Ok stir-fry rant is over haha
