What do I do when I have to cook for myself and all that I have in the fridge is some left over pasta and some lonely veggies. The best part about cooking for myself is I don’t have to worry if my DH is going to like it or not. So I went with my whim and I made myself a big bowl of mixed vegetable pasta.

Recipe Notes

You can also add/ substitute broccoli, asparagus, green beans, yellow squash, peas etc. to this dish. (These are the veggies I can think of from the top of my head right now). Also this makes lot of food for one person.
