Pasta and Peppers

Happy Friday!!

For this week's Lenten pasta series, my frozen veggies of choice to add to pasta were these guys:

Mixed pepper strips!

I ran some hot water over them to defrost while the pasta was cooking.

I love the pretty colors of the peppers.

Next up, I added it to the pasta and mixed together.

Baked for 10 minutes and I had myself a meal!

I loved, loved, loved the combination of peppers, pasta and cheese. It's just the right amount of carb and crunch.

Question of the Day:
Any fun weekend plans?

It's the husband's birthday this weekend, so tomorrow we're going out to dinner and on Sunday (his actual birthday), we're going to his mom's for dinner. Should be a fun time!

Have a great weekend!

Until next time!

Aw, have fun with your hubby for his bday! I agree with you -- peppers, pasta, and cheese...can't go wrong!

Basketball and dinner with friends tonight, habachi with work friends tomorrow night, and a hockey game on Sunday! I already got all the laundry done - none for the weekend! I shouldn't be so excited about that, huh? :)

Happy bday to your hubs! :)

And for some reason I have never thought of adding peppers to pasta. I usually do squash, zucchini, and mushrooms. Peppers would be good though!
