Taste of Summer Pasta

I'm in a serious funk not so much in terms of cooking but physically. The weekend was lovely with beautiful weather and an abundance of family and friends as we celebrated our Thanksgiving. Our Thanksgiving (Canadian) is always celebrated the second Monday of October somewhat earlier than the American Thanksgiving. That means we quite often end up with beautiful weather. Today the weather turned cooler with dropping temperatures and threatening rain. Despite a trip to the farm market and coming home loaded with goodies my body just didn't want to co-operate.

Taste of Summer Pasta

My husband went golfing trying to squeeze the last bit out of the nice weather and since he was not going to be home for dinner I decided a taste of summer was in order. Remember that pasta sauce I recently canned? Well I had a little left over, just enough to freeze for a serving. Looking at my purchases I decided to add as many fresh chopped vegetables as a topping. The end result was a wonderful, low fat, budget stretching, vegetarian meal that took me less that 15 minutes to put together. Now I used my homemade sauce but you could simulate this dish using a store bought sauce

Method: Cook angel hair pasta to al dente. Drain. Top with hot pasta sauce and chopped vegetables (tomatoes, onion, celery, green pepper). Serve with a side salad and dinner roll.
