Sicilian Pasta Primavera

Yield: Yield: 4 servings. 1-1/2 cups per serving.

Ingredients

Instructions

This spicy flavorful marinara sauce goes very well with the nutty taste of whole grain pasta. It has lots of color, texture, fiber and nutrients.
Pasta:

8 ounces whole wheat pasta
Sauce:
1 pound frozen Italian style vegetable medley
1 cup no-salt-added tomato sauce
1/4 cup tomato paste, no-added-salt
2 cups pasta sauce
pinch cayenne pepper

Topping:
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and hold until the sauce is ready.

Add all ingredients for the sauce to a large saucepan. Place over high heat until it comes to a boil; stir and lower heat to simmer. Cook until the vegetables are heated through and tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Serve the sauce over the pasta and top each serving with 1/2 tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese.
Optional serving suggestion: serve with a large tossed green salad.
