Pasta Primavera, My Way

A couple of weeks ago, I won a beautiful maple cutting board, handmade by Nate Kutsko of Kutsko Kitchen, from Angela at Spinach Tiger.  Angela's food blog is filled with scrumptious recipes, and she highlights restaurants in her hometown in Tennessee.




This is the large Rhombus and is suited for left and right handed folks.  I think it is beautiful to use as a serving tray as well.



It makes me want to chop!  




Veggies, that is.  I decided to make a quicky pasta primavera (springtime pasta).



Asparagus, mushrooms, red onion.  Fresh spring peas would have been great.  Add whatever veggies you like, such as zucchini, carrot.




This cute dish is a garlic grater.  My friend Diane got this for me at Pier I.  Works great (no pun).



Saute til caramelized, salt, pepper, two cloves of garlic.



Love this pasta, cook til al dente. Use a little pasta water in the pan if too dry







I really need to plate some of this.......................!
