      Thia is one of the cheapest recipes I make that feeds a tonne or a few very easily. My 11 year old son has even made this on his own since he was 9 with supervision from me.

      My son hasnamed it pasta primavera and asked for it so often that others in the family don’t,so we don’t make it as often anymore…too much of a good thing I guess. Anyway here goes…

      Get a pot of salted boiling water on for pasta (spaghetti, penne, etc.) What ever you happen to have.

      Pour a little olive oil in a pan and saute a little garlic (maybe a clove or 2), I then add a spice blend (like the greek one from Club House…I do buy mine at the bulk barn so it is much cheaper than buying the individual bottles) probably about a tsp or so. Throw in half a 1Kgbag of frozen veggies (we like the oriental blend with broccoli, peppers, mushrooms, baby corn, onions,etc) but whatever you have or like works also).

      Drain pasta and toss with veggie mixture. That is it and it is delicious. I like mine with lots of black pepper.

      Just adjust the amounts you need for your family size. This feeds us all for supper (4) plus the boys always have enough leftover for their lunch at school the next day. They are 11 and 14 so you can only imagine how much they eat !
