Have you ever visited 33 Shades of Green? My Mom over at Town and Country Living, suggested it to me. I love this blog. They have linky parties too! I've pinned so many of their recipes. I finally decided to make a recipe, and man was it good! It was super fresh and simple. I mean, you should go make this now it was that good and easy. It's called Farmers Market Pasta. Okay, so technically mine wasn't from the farmer's market...I didn't have a chance to get there this weekend. So mine was more like Whole Food's pasta! ;) Anyhoo, it was still delish. No, it's not vegan, but it's vegetarian so that's good enough for me!

My Version of Farmers Market Pasta
1/2lb pasta (I used Trader Joe's Organic GF Pasta)
1c reserved salted pasta water
mixed veggies (I got a mix from whole foods including red peppers, zucchini, squash, and onions)
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced in half
1 handful chopped fresh basil (right from my garden!)
crumbled goat cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Boil heavily salted water and cook pasta according to package directions. Reserve about one cup of the water before draining. This will later add flavor to the dish. Heat olive oil over medium heat, add in garlic and saute until fragrant. Then add in veggies and saute a couple minutes. Once this is done, mix pasta, veggies, tomatoes and basil together. Crumble goat cheese over top and serve with basil. Enjoy!
