this anything goes veggie pasta is a great way to use up whatever is left in your produce drawer at the end of the week! paired with some cooked pasta & topped with cheese, it’s a delicious simple meal any night of the week!


  • 2 cups raw veggies, chopped (any you have on hand will work – I used peppers & zucchini)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups cooked pasta (I used Barilla’s Ready Pasta which takes just 60 seconds in the microwave!)
  • Optional: red pepper flakes


  1. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add olive oil.
  2. Once olive oil is shimmering, add garlic and saute for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.  Lower heat as needed to ensure it doesn’t burn.
  3. Add veggie mixture, salt & pepper and saute until veggies are softened to your liking (7-10 minutes, depending on how tender you like them).
  4. Add cooked pasta to the skillet and additional olive oil as desired.  Sprinkle with red pepper flakes.  Toss well, cooking for another 2 minutes or so.
  5. Turn off heat, toss in cheese and add additional salt, pepper & red pepper flakes as desired.
  6. Plate & serve!
