Zucchini, Bell Pepper & Angel Hair Pasta

So another Wingsday... Another new try at winging it HA HA HA (I have to laugh since, ick, I don't like the wings!) Well, since I DON'T eat them, I made myself this pasta. Perfectly yummy & healthy for a warm night's dinner.

Zucchini, Bell Pepper & Angel Hair Pasta
  • 2 TBSp Canola Oil
  • 1 small Onion, sliced
  • 1 red Bell Pepper, sliced
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper, sliced
  • 1 Zucchini, peeled into "ribbons"*
  • 1/2 box Angel Hair Pasta, pieces broken in halves
  • Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese, Optional
In a pasta pot, set water to boil. 

In a Medium saute pan, heat the canola oil on Medium-High. Add in the onion slices, S & P & pepper slices. Saute until the veg is soft, but not too mushy.  

When the water boils for the pasta, add in the pasta & the zucchini strips. Cook as per instructions on the pasta box. Zuccini ribbons take the same amount of time. Drain, reserving a 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Add in the sauteed onion, bell pepper slices, along with any scrapings/oil in the pan. If needed, for extra moisture, add in the reserved pasta water here. Toss everything together.

Top with the grated parmesan & enojoy! 

*To make the Zucchini Ribbons- Take a Vegetable peeler & peel off the zucchini skin. Then continuously slice "ribbons" of zucchini into a pile with the peeler.

And as for the Buffalo Wingettes? We tried a new Frank's sauce- Buffalo. All I did this time was basted the wingettes in the sauce, Broiled them till very crisp & brown... Flipped the chicken pieces over, basted the other side... Broiled till browned again... & served doused with the Frank's/ I think my hubby loved this method the best so  far. And he loved the Frank's Buffalo Sauce's kick.
