What's for Lunch?

September 1, 2009

Lunch was lemon pepper pappardelle pasta with grilled zucchini, squash and onions. You can find the pasta at Trader Joe's. A 8 oz package costs $1.99. This can feed 3 people comfortably, even though the package does not look that big.

This meal is not at all hard or intensive.

  • Set your oven rack to the highest point in the oven
  • Preheat oven to broil at 400 degrees ferenheit
  • Start with 2 zucchinis, 2 squash and 1/2 an onion (you can use more or less of each).
  • Cut up the vegetables in big chunks on a bias
  • Coat the vegetables generously with olive oil
  • Put vegetables, excluding the onions onto a baking pan
  • Broil for approximately 15 minutes
  • In the mean time, cook the pasta according to the directions on the package
  • After 15 minutes, turn each of the vegetables over and combine the onion
  • If you have parmesan cheese, sprinkle the cheese over the vegetables (instead of using salt)
  • Put back the pan in the oven for another 10 - 15 minutes. Watch the oven carefully because it might burn if you are not careful
  • Once the pasta and vegetables are done, toss them together
