Pesto Primavera Spaghetti
Excuse the poor flash photo. This was dinner and may I say it was really yummy. I made my spinach lime pesto during the weekend to put on top of pizza so I had a lot leftover to make this. I cooked up some broccoli, swiss chard, red and yellow peppers and tossed them with multigrain spaghetti and the pesto. I added some fresh parsley, black olives and extra olive oil and garlic as well. This was my first try with the Safeway Eating Right brand of multigrain spaghetti and I actually really liked it. It had a good texture and was unlike any whole grain pasta I've had in the past (gross, dense and just yuck.). It also didn't stick together which was quite nice. I think I will buy this from now on instead of regular spaghetti. One day I'd like to try brown rice pasta as well. That just sounds really good to me and so much healthier.
EDIT: Stupid me, I didn't read the packaging at the store and this brand of pasta is NOT VEGAN. It contains egg whites. Damn! Oh well, guess I'll have to find a new brand.
