Angel Hair Pasta with Vegetables

October is National Pasta Month!  As if I need a reason to serve pasta.  I'd love to tell you that for the next 30 days I will be featuring pasta dishes but that isn't going to happen although there will be more pasta dishes presented this month.  I think like many pasta started out somewhat as a frugal, inexpensive meal choice then blossomed from there.  Pasta is so versatile it takes little effort to make a dish from scratch or using up leftovers.

There were a couple of grilled boneless pork loin chops left over from dinner the night before so I decided to use them in a pasta dish.  I used a light butter garlic sauce for the angel hair pasta then topped with the cubed pork that had been warmed in a fry pan.  The meat was topped sautéed onions and zucchini and slightly warmed home canned mushrooms.  Finally I topped with coarse chopped tomatoes and fresh grated parmesan cheese.

This was a simple, easy to make dinner that was packed full of flavour and texture.  It was also a very quick dish to make.  Angel hair pasta is a quick cooking pasta at only 6 minutes cook time to al dente.  From start to finish the meal took less than 15 minutes to prepare!
