Touch of Spice Pasta Saute

This is such a great lunch, and so easy to toss together.  Switch it up and add some chicken breast, or maybe some shrimp to make it something really special for a quick dinner.  Just make sure to leave some leftovers.  You'll want them for lunch.  This recipe will serve 2-4.

First to prepare the saute mix the following:

1 17oz bottle Pure Olive Oil
1 tablespoon each of the following:
Minced Onion
Minced Garlic
Minced Chili Peppers of your choice (serrano, jalapeno etc)

Add the onion, garlic and chili peppers to the olive oil.  Adjust accordingly if you like.  If you prefer more or less chili pepper mix it up.  Let the saute set for up to a week, shaking occasionally.

Shake Olive Oil and pour 1/4 cup of the saute in a large skillet.  Toss in the following:

1 cup Baby Carrots
1 cup Snow Peas
1 cup Broccoli
1 cup Cauliflower
2 Tsp kosher salt
2 Tsp fresh ground pepper

Saute vegetables in olive oil with salt and pepper stirring constantly for 10 minutes.

Prepare two cups of pasta (your choice..I used vermicelli) per package directions.  Drain but do not rinse.  Add to vegetables and continue tossing in skillet for another 5 minutes.
