Broccoli and pasta are a perfect duo! With added herbs, parmesan and green onions, this dish is outstanding. Use whole wheat pasta to add whole grains.
2 cups fettucini noodles, uncooked (preferably whole wheat)
3 Tablespoons chopped green onion (also called scallions)
2 cups broccoli florets
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 can (14.5 ounce) stewed tomatoes
2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 Cook noodles according to package instructions (do not include oil or salt), and drain.
2 Spray a medium skillet with nonstick cooking spray; stir-fry onion and broccoli for 3 minutes over medium heat.
3 Add seasonings (but not the Parmesan cheese) and tomatoes; simmer until heated through.
4 Spoon vegetable mixture over noodles and top with Parmesan cheese.
5 Serving Size: 1 1/4 cup.
